Road safety programs

Council continues to work closely with the community, Queensland Police Service and the Department of Transport and Main Roads to improve safety for road users in Redlands.

A number community road safety programs are being progressed by Council.

One of these programs is the We Care for Our Kids Program, which currently combines four initial projects to improve safety around schools:

Look Out Loading Zone

An educational and support project helping interested schools operate a safe drop-off and pick-up area for school students and parents

'No Excuses' School Road Safety Guide

Integrating information and resources on a range of road safety options into a printed guide to be provided to school communities. This guide helps school communities take the lead in actively resolving behavioural issues around school safety. Council, Police and Department of Transport are supporting agencies

School Zone educational vehicles

Council vehicles marked with school speed zone stickers and messages parked in or mobile through school speed zones. Used in conjunction with police and local law enforcement

Speed Awareness for Safer Roads in Redlands

Improving drivers' awareness of their travelling speed and minimising speeding around schools through use of portable variable message signs activated by radar detection of vehicle speeds.
