THE City of Rockingham is supporting the Road Ribbon for Road Safety campaign to promote road safety over the Christmas holiday period.

A community based initiative, the campaign encourages people to take care on the roads and promote road safety messages to friends, family and colleagues to help reduce road trauma.

It is aligned to Towards Zero, WA’s Road Safety Strategy 2008 – 2020.

The campaign runs until Friday, January 4.

Mayor Barry Sammels encouraged residents to be cautious on the road over the Christmas holiday period.

“The Christmas and New Year break is an especially busy time on our roads and motorists should take extra care when travelling during the festive season,” he said.

“We believe the only acceptable road toll is zero, which is why we encourage residents to get behind the Road Ribbon for Road Safety campaign.

“By working together we can ensure everyone stays safe on our roads this summer and gets to enjoy Christmas with loved ones.”

Residents can help raise awareness of road safety by wearing a road ribbon. They are available free of charge from the City of Rockingham Administration Building and the City’s libraries.
