Pledge to drive so others survive - 50 in my street

Published:

Acting Sergeant Sandy Atkinson on Nov 17, 2020 @ 2:39pm

A road safety initiative which aims to highlight reduced speed limits was expanded to include Mountain Ash Drive, Mountain Creek.

The 50 in my street initiative is a partnership involving the Queensland Police Service, Sunshine Coast Council and Mountain Creek Neighbourhood Watch Group.

Acting Sergeant Sandy Atkinson with NHW Coordinator Wendy Walker

Residents of Mountain Creek have made it clear they have had enough of motorists flouting the speed limits.

As part of the project, large yellow stickers with the message 50 in my street have been attached to residents’ wheelie bins in Mountain Ash Drive as a colourful and visual prompt to motorists.

Maroochydore Police will be out in the community to remind drivers to slow down on local roads.

Excessive speed is one of the Fatal Five factors that contributes to road trauma.

Remember, National Road Safety Week 2020 – pledge to drive so others survive.
