The City of Gosnells is encouraging all parents and road users to make safety a priority when students return to school on Monday 1 February.

Mayor David Goode said everyone in the community had a role to play in keeping children safe around our schools.

“There’s no reason why we can’t all stick to the reduced speed limit, park only in designated areas, respect school crossings and use ‘kiss and drive’ bays to drop not stop,” he said.

“In recent years, the City has worked closely with schools and police to address issues with traffic management and illegal parking. Our Rangers regularly monitor hot-spots and road modifications have been made at several schools to improve safety.

“Parents can also reduce the risk for children, particularly at the start of the year when many students are learning to make their way to school for the first time, by walking all or part of the way and following your school’s traffic advice.”
