WA’s 40km/h school zones back in operation on Monday
WA road users are reminded that students return for the fourth and final school term for 2019 on Monday, 14 October.
Drivers have been urged to take extra care on the roads as students make their way back to the classroom for Term 4, with many choosing to walk, cycle or scoot to school.
For parents who drive their students to school, children aged 7 years and under must be restrained
in a child car restraint that is:
• appropriate for the child's size and height;
• not old, worn restraints over 10 years old (or that have previously been in a crash); and
• correctly installed in the vehicles. WALGA RoadWise
offers free advice and fitting for child car restraints in Western Australia.
Around WA schools, 40km/h zones will be back in operation on weekdays, between 7.30am and 9am and 2.30pm and 4pm, from this Monday until the end of the school year on 20 December 2019.
