Double Demerits will be in force this weekend from Friday May 29 until Monday June 1 inclusive.
With restrictions relaxed, there is expected to be a massive influx to West Australian roads as people flock to our regional areas.
The Government kicked off it’s new road safety campaign in support of this – ‘Kindness Travels’ – which begins airing in print, television and radio media from tomorrow.
The campaign encourages all drivers to bring back the courtesy wave – a wave or a nod of the head, to acknowledge another driver’s courtesy and your appreciation of it.
The campaign has been produced in association with 7West Media, Channel 9, Southern Cross Austereo and JCDecaux.
The idea of a campaign focusing on promoting ‘respect’ between road users is in response to community feedback to the Road Safety Commission.
