Signs put safety first

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Rivervale -

A RE­CENT fo­cus on safety for cy­clists prompted the River­vale Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion to de­sign small posters or cards that can be dis­played in ve­hi­cles.

The signs dis­cour­age tex­ting while driv­ing, road rage and tail­gat­ing.

RCA mem­ber Roger Broinowski said the set of small dig­i­tal de­signs cost $5 and peo­ple could print as many as they wanted.

“The idea is to get them out there quickly,” he said.

“We’ve got lots of good cy­cle paths, but peo­ple are in­creas­ingly du­bi­ous about go­ing on the high­ways.”

The group is look­ing for a cor­po­rate spon­sor to fund stick­ers or posters big enough for the back of buses.
