Road safety

Road safety

Council is committed to community road safety. Council employs a Road Safety Officer in partnership with the Roads and Maritime Service to deliver local road safety benefits to our community.

We work closely with state authorities to reduce local road crashes and improve holiday road safety.

We keep our pedestrians and cyclists as safe as possible through the strategic development and progressive implementation of our plans and policies. We manage these assets, with Council's available resources so you can enjoy them as safely as possible.

Our Road Safety Officer works with local groups, schools, preschools and play groups to help educate our community on road safety. 

There's also a lot you can do to keep our roads safe. Drivers should adopt low-risk driving techniques and adhere to the four pillars of the safe systems approach
