Little Blue Dinosaur comes to the Southern Highlands
Wingecarribee Shire Council and the Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation are joining forces this December to raise awareness of the importance of child road safety.
The foundation was set up by Michelle and David McLaughlin in 2014 after their young son was tragically killed in a pedestrian accident while on holidays.
As part of the campaign, ‘Holiday Time: Slow Down, Kids Around’ signage will be erected at locations popular with children these summer school holidays.
Drivers are encouraged to slow down and look out for children on and near our roads. Children in particular can become quickly caught up in the holiday spirit and forget to take care around roads.
Children are our most vulnerable road users parents and carers are urged to hold the hands of children when on or near roads until they are at least ten years of age.
Together with the Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation we can all work together to create a safer environment for all children living in or visiting the Highlands these summer holidays.
