Safe School Speeds

Gibson, R.

Speed Limits 2

ARSC conference 2017

The City of Wanneroo safe school speeds project aimed to prevent death and serious injury by ensuring speeds in school zones were being adhered to. The project strategically reviewed all 50 schools within the City of Wanneroo to identify areas with significant safety issues with the road environment around schools and take measures to address these issues. As a result of the review the City referred 35 school zones to WA police for enhanced enforcement, advocated for the installation of electronic school zone signage at 4 high risk sites, identified 22 children's crossing locations and installed 8 children's crossings.
