Prayers for road safety over Easter
SPECIAL blessing of the road ceremonies will be hosted by the cities of Wanneroo and Joondalup later this month to promote the importance of safety for all road users.
The annual ceremonies are part of the WA Local Government Association’s RoadWise program that focuses on road safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians travelling during the busy Easter period.
It is also a chance to remember the hundreds of West Australians killed or injured on WA roads each year and to recognise the efforts of emergency services personnel and volunteer workers who are often the first responders at crash sites.
The Wanneroo ceremony will be held on March 28 from 10am to 11.30am next to the City’s busiest intersection at Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive in Tapping.
At the ceremony, the WA Police chaplain will pray for safety on all roads with representatives from WA Police, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services and St John’s Ambulance also in attendance.
The Human Spirit Awards will be presented on the day, acknowledging dedicated individuals and groups contributing to road safety each day.

The Joondalup ceremony, held in conjunction with the cities of Stirling and Swan, will be at Sorrento Beach Park from 9.30am to 11.30am.
