Bundaberg Police have applauded the local community for supporting Queensland Road Safety Week and recording fewer infringements.

Shopping centres and schools signed up for road safety by using their message boards to promote that road safety is everyone’s responsibility.

During the week, Bundaberg Police also visited several schools in the area to remind students about their roles in road safety.

Tuesday involved a team effort with QFES officers to deliver the Road Attitudes and Action Planning presentation at Shalom College.

The presentation was well received by students. Both QPS and QFES members said they were looking forward to presenting the program to more high schools in the area.

On Wednesday, Police Liaison Officer Edy Gradowska met with the students from the Adult Migrant English Program at TAFE Bundaberg.

PLO Gradowska spoke about road safety and discussed the Fatal Five with the students – speeding, drink/drug driving, seat belt use, fatigue and distractions.

Students also had the opportunity to ask questions and check their road rule knowledge by completing a road safety quiz.

With Queensland Road Safety Week now completed, police said there had been a decrease in crashes in the Bundaberg area “which demonstrates the community is listening to our key messages”.

Bundaberg Police issued 62 traffic infringement notices during the week and conducted over 600 roadside breath tests.
