YESTERDAY 132 pairs of shoes were laid out in Civic Square to remember those who have died on the ACT’s roads in the last 10 years.
“The ACT Government is participating in this campaign – with yellow ribbons being displayed on police and emergency services vehicles and vehicle inspection cars. In addition, Telstra Tower, Questacon and Old Parliament House will be lit up in yellow at night for the entire week,” Simon said.
“Anything that we can all do to reinforce road safety awareness on our roads is a very worthwhile action to take. I am urging all Canberrans to support this campaign – by displaying a yellow ribbon on your vehicle and encouraging each other to drive safely. Be alert and unimpaired and make sure that you wear a seatbelt and comply with speed limits and other road rules. These are all simple steps that can make our roads a lot safer.”
