WA councils urged to get involved with Easter road safety tradition
Local governments and organisations around WA have been urged to promote safe road use this Easter and participate in the traditional Blessing of the Roads.
WALGA RoadWise coordinated the first Blessing of the Roads in 1999, a non-denominational road safety campaign to reduce road trauma on WA roads as people travel long distances on the Easter long weekend.
The 2019 Easter long weekend runs from Friday, 19 April to Monday, 22 April.
To ensure a successful event, organisations can access the WALGA RoadWise Blessing of the Roads campaign kit
that includes social media post tips, speech and media release samples and event posters.
