Road Safety

An initiative to address the problem of safety on our roads is the Local Government Road Safety Officer Program

The program aims to increase the involvement of Local Government and local communities in strategies to improve the safety of people on roads. The program relates to behavioural issues with a focus on improving road safety within the local community. The aim is to raise awareness of key issues, which contribute to local road crashes, and to develop and implement highly localised projects to address these issues.

The Road Safety Officer works closely with traffic engineers, Police, the Roads and Maritime Services and the local community to address road safety issues in the Griffith local government area.

Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers 

Parents and supervisors of local learner drivers are encouraged to express their interest in a free workshop to be held at the Griffith Council Chambers on Thursday 19th April commencing at 6:00pm. 
The workshop covers topics such as; the new licence conditions for learner and P-plate drivers, how to use the Learner Driver Logbook, the benefits of on-road driving sessions and tips on supervising a learner driver. 
The session also reinforces the important role of families in providing on-going support for young drivers in the early years of driving.
