“World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims”
RoadWise – WA Local Government Association
The Road Ribbon for Road Safety® campaign is a community-based initiative which enables everyone to directly contribute to raising awareness and the importance of road safety in Western Australia. The campaign has been developed in support of the United Nations endorsed, World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, which is dedicated to remembering those who have been killed or seriously injured on our roads. This day also provides an opportunity for reflection, for families and communities, as well as dedicated emergency services personal, police and volunteers who have dealt with the traumatic aftermath of road death and injury. The campaign will run until Friday, 7 January 2017
“WALGA – RoadWise”
WALGA’s RoadWise Program, founded in 1994, is the Local Government and Community Road Safety Program for Western Australia. The aim of the Program is to engage Local Governments and communities in actions that support and contribute to the implementation of Towards Zero, the road safety strategy for WA 2008-2020. To achieve this aim, the Program supports Local Governments, community groups, local businesses and individuals to become involved in the community road safety network across Western Australia. A team of regional and metropolitan based RoadWise staff assist members of the statewide community road safety network by promoting participation and community ownership; facilitating opportunities for local road safety leadership; supporting local road safety committees; providing access to resources and training; and sharing information, which all contribute to building the capacity of the network to make an effective contribution to preventing or reducing death or serious injury in Western Australia.
