Road Safety

Road safety page banner

Education and promotion of road safety concepts and safe road use behaviours, is important in helping to reduce the road toll and associated road trauma. 

 

Wingecarribee Shire Council employs a Road Safety Officer who is responsible for the development and implementation of local road safety programs in the Southern Highlands. 

 

The Road Safety Officer assists in the localisation of state-wide road safety campaigns, works with the community and other key road safety stakeholders to develop road safety promotions and assists police in publicising traffic enforcement.

 

Success in modifying road user behaviour comes from a combination of educational programs, legislation, enforcement and appropriate engineering solutions, together with measures to make it easier for people to behave safely. The Road Safety Officer endeavours to implement these principles in all activities undertaken.
