Moreton Bay – turning road safety ideas into actions
Putting road safety on the map
The Active and Safe Mapping Program helps to keep kids safe around schools. The program encourages parents and students to park their vehicles up to 800m away from school entry points to help reduce congestion and increase road safety awareness in the school community. Maps have been developed for 12 primary schools in the region, to show drivers where to park and safe walking routes. It’s a great way to promote road safety and encourage exercise at the same time.
Putting road safety on the radar.
Another road safety issue effecting Moreton Bay region is speeding. In a bid to slow drivers on local streets and in work zones, six variable messaging signs will be fitted with speed radars. The signs will alert drivers of the speed they are travelling and encourage them to slow down if they are over the speed limit.
