MLA wel­comes flash­ing lights

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

SOUTH Perth MLA John McGrath wel­comed the State Gov­ern­ment an­nounce­ment that seven more lo­cal schools will have flash­ing safety lights in­stalled this fi­nan­cial year.

Mr McGrath said LED 40km/h signs would be in­stalled at Como, South Perth, St Columba’s and St Pius X pri­mary schools, and Aquinas, Como Sec­ondary and Penrhos Col­leges for the 2015-16 elec­tronic school sign pro­gram.

“A record num­ber of nearly 300 schools across the State will get these signs this fi­na­cial year,” Mr McGrath said.

“These lights in­crease driver aware­ness that they are en­ter­ing a school zone and are re­quired to re­duce speed to the 40km/h limit.”

Mr McGrath said the safety lights were part of the Lib­eral-Na­tional Gov­ern­ment’s com­mit­ment to make road safety one of its top pri­or­i­ties.
