As part of SDERA’s National Road Safety Week 2018 activities, Acting Commissioner Iain Cameron visited Year 3, 4 and 5 students at Springfield Primary School in Kallaroo.

The northern suburbs primary school has been impacted by road trauma, with the school’s traffic warden and a student injured by vehicles in serious road incidents.

Surrounded by yellow ribbons emblazoned with road safety messages, Mr Cameron spoke about how the Road Safety Commission is working to achieve zero road deaths and injuries on WA roads, and was pleased with the students’ participation.

“The students at Springfield Primary School impressed me greatly with their road safety knowledge,” said Mr Cameron.

“The children were well informed about new laws in Western Australia, including Slow Down, Move Over and the safe distance passing legislation and keen to discuss road safety issues and solutions.”

The children also received a visit from Izzy, the SDERA road safety mascot who encourages students how to stay safe in the traffic environment.
