Slow Down Save Lives is a community-led road safety campaign being rolled out in Launceston's Northern suburbs, raising awareness for motorists to slow down near schools and in residential areas.
About the campaign
The Slow Down Save Lives pilot program has been supported by the City of Launceston, the Tasmanian Department of State Growth, Healthy Tasmania, Starting Point Neighbourhood House and the Northern Suburbs Community Centre.
The campaign is the brain-child of community members who developed the concept during workshops held in July and August last year, and is designed to remind motorists to prioritise the safety of all road users.
It includes social media messaging, a short video series by local film-makers, and the roll-out of road safety stickers on wheelie bins in three streets in Rocherlea and Ravenswood. The stickers feature images of pupils from East Tamar Primary School and Ravenswood Heights Primary School which will be fixed to wheelie bins in Blackwood Drive, Prossers Forest Road and Lambert Street in March.
This campaign is proudly supported by The City of Launceston, the Tasmanian Department of State Growth, Healthy Tasmania, Starting Point Neighbourhood House and the Northern Suburbs Community Centre
