OCEAN Road Primary School is one of many schools to have flashing electronic school zone signs installed.
Dawesville MLA Kim Hames said a record number of WA schools had flashing 40km/h Electronic (LED) School Zone signs installed.
The State Liberal National Government committed $36 million to install the signs to all eligible WA schools – a total of 1075 schools – by March 2017.
“By the end of June, more than 470 schools will have these warning signs installed, which is a great outcome to help keep our children safe” Dr Hames said.
“The flashing signs really do highlight to drivers that they are entering into a 40km/h school zone and they need to slow down. Principals, parents, students and the general public all agree this is a great initiative and they have welcomed the program.”
The funding comes from the Road Trauma Trust Account, which is funded by fixed camera, red light and speeding fines.
