The City is committed to improving road safety on local roads and to reduce the risk of road trauma. In order to achieve this objective, the City conducts, supports and promotes various road safety initiatives.
School Road Safety Art competition
The City runs the School Road Safety Art Competition, which raises awareness of road safety issues by asking students to create A3 artworks on specific road safety themes. The competition runs during term three of the school calendar. Students who win are presented with their prizes at their school assembly.
The City’s traffic team visits schools to discuss road safety issues with Principals and P&C committee members. The most common problems are parking and congestion. The team assesses the situation and provides possible solutions to these problems. Schools are encouraged to form school road safety committees to solve issues with guidance from the WALGA’s RoadWise Program Guidelines for Road Safety Around Schools. The City also encourages schools to use the materials produced by the School Drug Education and RoadAware (SDERA) program.
The City provides 'Please Slow Down, Consider Our Kids' bin stickers to place on the side of green Council waste bins. The bin stickers are part of a community education campaign to raise the awareness of drivers to reduce their speed in built up areas.
The stickers act as a deterrent for speeding by providing a visual reminder to drivers to reduce their speed. As they are only displayed on bin collection days, it reduces the chance that drivers will become accustomed to them.
If you would like a sticker for your bin, please contact the City of Joondalup on 9400 4335.
Road Ribbons for Road Safety campaign
The City supports the Road Ribbons for Road Safety campaign a community based initiative which allows individuals to directly contribute to raising awareness about the importance of road safety over the Christmas holiday period.
By use of promotional resources, the City encourages local residents to wear a white ribbon. This campaign urges people to take care on the roads and promote road safety messages to friends, family and colleagues helping to reduce road trauma.
