Slow Down for safetyPosted Tuesday 03 March 2020
Temporary signs have been installed on Moruben Road for a six-week trial road safety project to encourage drivers to slow down on local roads.
The Council Slow Down initiative includes education via social media and speed surveys as well as the installation of the reusable signage, made from recyclable plastic, along the length of Moruben Road.
With speed the highest contributing factor in car crashes in Mosman, the project aims to remind motorists to stay below the urban limit of 50 km/h.
Speed-related fatalities contribute to about 40 per cent of road deaths each year, while even small reductions in vehicle speed, as little as 5 km/h, can reduce the number of deaths and the severity of injuries caused by crashes.
If the trial and public consultation indicate that the slow down project is successful and supported, it may be rotated on a temporary basis through other streets.
