Road Ribbons for Road Safety image

17 November 2017

Sunday November 19, marks the first day of the Road Ribbon for Road Safety® campaign, which coincides with World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

Albany Mayor Dennis Wellington said everyone has a role to play in road safety and encouraged community members and visitors to the region to focus on arriving alive and safely to their destinations.

“We ask the community to comply with all road rules, stay alert and drive to the conditions, it’s an exciting time of year for everyone, let’s make sure that people travelling across the Great Southern arrive at their destinations in one piece,” Mayor Wellington said.

During the Road Ribbon for Road Safety® campaign, remember to avoid your mobile phone while driving, adapt your speed for the weather, light, traffic and road conditions, always buckle up while travelling in a vehicle, take a break from driving if you’re fatigued, and arrange a skipper or alternate plans if you’re going to drink.

Most importantly, arrive alive and safely.
