Drive down any suburban Australian road on a summer day and you will see countless children playing and on the driveway of their home. However, this is one place that can cause danger without warning and an area the NSW government is targeting in its latest safety campaign.
Announced recently, the state government is working alongside the Georgina Josephine Foundation to spread the word on driveway safety and how to curb the increasing accident rate.
The base of the campaign revolves around a video that highlights basic measures such as driveway access, visibility and ensuring garages are fitted with child locks. The video is available from the foundation’s workshops and website as well as on the Centre for Road Safety webpage.
