Hundreds of thousands of Western Australian school students return to the classroom tomorrow.

Road Safety Minister Michelle Roberts has announced two road safety initiatives to educate school aged students about the risks they may encounter on the roads.

Mrs Roberts announced that every WA pre-school class will be presented with the road safety story book ‘That’s the Sound the Street Makes’ by renowned author Danny Katz.

Using a $7,300 road safety grant, School Drug Education and Road Aware (SDERA) have printed 1500 copies of the book that will be distributed to pre-primary classrooms in the next week.

A $100,000 partnership between the Road Safety Commission and the Constable Care Safety School was also announced by the Minister at St Paul’s Primary School in Mt Lawley today.

The partnership allows the Constable Care Safety School to produce an augmented reality app that will make the road safety message easily accessible to regional and remote schools in WA.

The Minister also issued a reminder to drivers that WA Police Force will be on the roads enforcing 40km/h school zones around WA schools from tomorrow.

School zones are enforced between the hours of 7.30am and 9am and 2.30pm and 4pm.
