Local shoppers put road safety first

Published:

As part of this year's Queensland Road Safety Week, local police participated in a road safety awareness display at the Sunshine Plaza.

Many community members were happy to make a road safety pledge

The local community were given the opportunity to take the pledge for road safety by signing an inflatable car.

Queensland Road Safety Week is a Queensland Government initiative, delivered in partnership by the Department of Transport and Main Roads and Queensland Police Service.

In 2018, 245 people were killed on Queensland roads and more than 5,606 people were seriously injured.

This year, we asked Queenslanders to put road safety first.

No matter how busy you are, no matter what else is demanding your attention, every time you use the road, ensure you make road safety your first priority.

For more information please visit this website.

The community's safety is our priority and police will continue to target the Fatal Five; speeding, drink and drug driving, not wearing a seatbelt, driving while fatigued and driving distracted.

Thank you to all community members who made road safety their priority during last week’s Queensland Road Safety Week, police hope you continue to do so at all times.
