Do you work in regional or remote communities in Western Australia?
Are you looking for an evidence based program for road safety?
The Road Safety Commission has just unveiled “Keeping Your Mob Safe: A Guide to making Roads Safer In Your Community” as the way forward for indigenous road safety in WA.
The guide, produced by the Road Safety Commission – along with the University of New South Wales, Austroads, TARS Research and the Bidyadanga community – seeks to educate and empower indigenous people to adopt safe roads, vehicles, speed and road use practices in their communities.
The safe system approach focuses on four areas, including safer roads and footpaths; safe cars; safe speeds and safe road use; making for a holistic guide to reduce road crashes.
The strategy guides remote communities through developing a plan, liaising with important community members, contacting authorities and developing government partnerships, to eventually make their communities safer.
Worried about resourcing? The guide comes complete with planning worksheets and resources as well as a list of potential funding sources!
So access “Keeping Your Mob Safe: A Guide To Making Roads Safer In Your Community” today and start implementing a “safe system” to make your community safer.
