Vehicle Safety Checked in the City of Swan

Posted on: Monday, 23 December 2019 at 12:00:00 AM

The City of Swan RoadWise Working Group recently partnered with the Department of Transport and the City of Stirling to provide free vehicle safety and child car restraint checks to the community.

Department of Transport staff volunteered to provide vehicle safety checks, checking for safety and mechanical issues such as tyre tread, working lights and worn seatbelts.

The average age of Western Australia’s passenger vehicle fleet is 10.7 years1 and ensuring that older vehicles are in good, safe condition can help to reduce the risk of road fatalities and serious injuries.

Trained Type 1 Child Car Restraint Fitters also volunteered their time to provide free installations and inspections, ensuring child car restraints were correctly installed in the vehicle and suitable for the child’s age and size.

The event attracted a steady stream of community members, providing an opportunity to have a chat about the importance of safe vehicles.
