With the increasing popularity of the Leederville, Mt Lawley, Highgate, Perth and Mt Hawthorn entertainment areas, the issue of drink driving has become more evident. The City through the Vincent Accord has been working with licensed premises to address this issue and educate patrons on the dangers of drink driving.
Please Slow Down, Consider Our Kids
The City of Vincent participates in the 'Please Slow Down, Consider our Kids' bin sticker project. The bin stickers are only displayed one day a week on the street in an effort to reduce the chance that the motorist will become accustomed to their presence. They provide an opportunity for householders to actively address motorist speeding in their street and aim to reduce travel speeds.
Slow Down in Vincent
From 2019 the City of Vincent will be introducing a two year trial of reduced speed on local streets in the southern suburbs. The trail zone will extend a 40km/h speed limit from Charles Street in the West through to the Swan River in the East between Newcastle and Vincent Streets.
Consultation with the community showed a positive response to a lower speed limit within local streets and see it as a way to bring back a neighborhood feel to their roads. The City of Vincent is hoping the trial will demonstrate safer, more welcoming streets where people can ride and walk safely, and kids feel safe playing outdoors.
With support from the Road Safety Commission who will fund the study component, this 40km/h speed limit trial will be the first in Western Australia where a lower speed limit is applied to a larger area of local streets. It is a great opportunity to research lower residential speed zones with the potential to inform an understanding of the benefits to the greater Perth Area.
