As in previous years, the Queensland Government has launched a statewide road safety event, Queensland Road Safety Week from Monday, August 27 to Friday, August 31. This week long event is an opportunity for all Queenslanders to be directly involved in making our roads safer for everyone and residents from the Sunshine Coast have certainly 'Joined the drive to save lives'.

Today kicked off with 'Kops in Kilts' piping the students from Mooloolaba State School for their Weekly Walk to School Program.

To support the students on their walk, they were joined by Sunshine Coast District Officer Superintendent Darryl Johnson, local Members of Parliament, Buderim Lions, parents and volunteers who all choose to work together to make our roads safer.

The students were also joined by an interesting array of characters, as they enjoyed the beautiful morning walk up Alexandra Parade, then enjoyed discovering the 'ins and outs' of some Emergency Services vehicles.

Crossing the busy intersection of Mooloolaba Esplanade and Buderim Avenue was the next challenge. Lucky Constable Clancy the Koala was there to help keep all the kids safe – Thanks Clancy.

Refreshing your road rules knowledge is a simple way to improve road safety for yourself and for other road users. Throughout the week, we are highlighting different road user groups including motorists, pedestrians, bicycle riders, heavy vehicle drivers and motorcyclists.
