MANDURAH Roadwise Advisory Group hosts the 2018 Blessing of the Roads at Christ’s Church Anglican Church this Sunday at 9.30am, encouraging road safety ahead of the Easter break.

Blessing of the Roads was first co-ordinated by Roadwise in 1999 and is a statewide community road safety campaign held in the lead up to and during Easter when many people travel long distances to visit family and friends.

The event recognises the dedication and efforts of those who work towards reducing road trauma in WA and the combined efforts with the community in working towards zero fatalities and injuries.

It is also an opportunity to remember those who have died or been seriously injured in a road crash and to drive actions which change the results in the future.

Blessing of the Roads is aligned with Towards Zero, WA’s road safety strategy (2008-2020) which follows the globally recognised approach to achieve a long term vision where road fatalities and serious injury is virtually eliminated.
