The chair of Road­safe GV Des Cal­laghan asks all motorists to be mind­ful of the speed sig­nage vari­a­tions on all our roads, streets and school cross­ings and never park on the cross­ings. Do not use any elec­tronic de­vices while driv­ing as heavy fines and de­merit points will ap­ply. Take care at all times. Road safety is the com­mu­nity’s re­spon­si­bil­ity.
