Safe driving on campus

News story

Did you know that inattention is now one of the leading behavioural causes of death and serious injury on our roads?

Students walking together on the road

A 2018 RAC survey found 80 percent of WA motorists use their phone behind the wheel, despite 90 percent admitting it was dangerous to do so.

A number of recent incidents and near-misses on campus have involved vehicle-pedestrian collisions. Many of these incidents have occurred at designated zebra crossings.

In order to keep our campus community safe, please ensure that you:

  • Adhere to the 30km/hr speed limit on campus roads
  • Adhere to the 10km/hr speed limit in campus carparks
  • Remain alert and give way to pedestrians

Take a look at the RAC WA Drive in the moment toolkit to make sure you aren’t distracted while driving and see us all get home safely.
