A CAMPAIGN to make local roads safer has been reignited.

Joondalup councillor Nige Jones has been visiting schools to deliver bin stickers to encourage people to slow down in the local area.

“The issue of road safety around schools is an important topic,” Cr Jones said.

“The City of Joondalup encourages everyone to drive, ride and walk with consideration to other road users and obey the road rules.

“A small way to participate is to place a ‘Please Slow Down, Consider Our Kids’ sticker on your red-lidded bin.”

In the past two weeks, 480 stickers have been delivered to St Simon Peter Catholic Primary School in Ocean Reef, 278 to Connolly Primary School, 215 to Eddystone Primary School in Heathridge, 520 to Beaumaris Primary School in Ocean Reef and 180 to Poseidon Primary School in Heathridge.
