Road Safety Awareness

In 2020 there were 155 total road fatalities on WA roads, and in 2021 (as of the 23rd of February), there have been 31 road fatalities. Road safety applies to all of us as we make our way on the roads, whether we are driving a vehicle, riding a bike, going to school or just crossing the road. To improve road safety awareness in the community, the City of Kalamunda has launched a 12-month campaign starting in March 2021. How is your road safety awareness? Can you please take the survey to help us understand the community’s knowledge, behaviours and values around road safety.

We appreciate your time in completing the below survey and in contributing to this important discussion.


March 2021: City Launches Road Safety Awareness Campaign

The City of Kalamunda has received more than $50,000 from the Federal Government’s Road Safety Awareness and Enablers Fund to deliver tailored road safety messaging to the local community over the next 12-months.

In the five years ending December 2018, the City recorded 882 crashes on local roads resulting in 13 fatalities and 163 serious injuries.

Additionally, traffic data across the City shows around 30% of drivers drive over the speed limit, and the City continues to receive regular complaints from residents regarding hooning and other road safety concerns.

Mayor Margaret Thomas said improving road safety awareness and knowledge around key road safety topics is at the heart of the City’s year-long campaign. “While preparing messaging for the project we quickly discovered there’s not one road safety theme we could, or should, focus on,” Cr Thomas said.

“Instead, we’re giving equal voice to a variety of topics that will contribute to raising awareness and safety for our community members who walk, cycle and drive in the City.

“The campaign covers things like speeding, reducing distractions when driving, cyclists and tips to help keep children safe that will roll out via the City’s social media channels with promotional messaging popping up at shopping centres, schools and other community hubs over the next 12-months.”

To assist with the awareness program’s launch, the City is asking what you know about road safety. Help us understand with your feedback through the below survey.

Public Survey: Comments closed 5pm, Friday 7 May 2021. [First published 7 April 2021]

In May 2021 the City worked with local Primary Schools promoting Road Safety. Over 200 students designed Road Safety posters which were exhibited in the Kalamunda Library.
