Local Road Safety Programs

Rubbish Bin Stickers

Do your bit for road safety and slap a sticker on your household bin urging drivers to “Please Slow Down - Consider Our Kids”.

The Town, in partnership with the Road Safety Council of WA are providing the stickers free to all residents, with the aim of reminding motorists the importance of driving carefully and within the speed limit.

Reducing speed is vital for keeping our road safe, with speeding drivers identified as a main contributing factor in road related deaths and serious injury in Western Australia.

These stickers are a great way of reminding drivers why it’s important not to speed!

Stickers are available for collection from:

Town of Cambridge Administration Centre  1 Bold Park Drive, Floreat 
The Boulevard Centre  99 The Boulevard, Floreat
(lower level Cambridge Library) 

Alternatively, contact the Community Safety Coordinator to send you a road safety sticker in the mail. 

 

Guidelines for use

Please ensure the sticker:

  • is only displayed on a portable rubbish bin owned and serviced by the Town of Cambridge;
  • is not used on or in view of West Coast Highway or Loftus Street, West Leederville (these roads are controlled by Main Roads WA); and
  • Is positioned in the middle of the side of the bin facing on-coming traffic (closest lane) and not covering the bin serial number

 

Radar Speed Indicator

An automated trailer measuring and displaying vehicle speeds is used in local school zones, road construction areas and on local streets as a safety reminder for motorists. It aims to raise awareness about local speed zones and to increase pedestrian safety by slowing traffic.

The trailer uses a radar to measure the speed of passing vehicles. Telephone the Town if you know of a location where the use of the speed indicator trailer will assist local road safety.

 

Vehicle Child Restraint Fittings

The Town provides fitting and checking of vehicle child restraints at no cost to local residents.

Fittings take place at the Town's Administration building located at 1 Bold Park Drive in Floreat, every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month, between 9:30am - 12:30pm. A RoadWise trained vehicle child restraint fitter will check the installation of baby capsules, booster seats, harnesses and baby seats and will advise if the equipment meets Australian Standards. To take advantage of this service telephone 9347 6000 to make an appointment. 

For alternate providers visit the RoadWise website or telephone 1300 780 713.

 

Traffic Count Meters

The Town places traffic count meters temporarily in locations on local streets to record vehicle speeds over specific time periods. The information provided by these counters is used to identify roads with ongoing speed problems to assist road improvement planning and speed management.

 

Please contact the Town if you have any other enquiries about local road safety programs.
