TMAA and CCF Tasmania recently launched last week a new road safety awareness campaign in Tasmania focused on the message 'Your Speed is Our Safety'. The campaign kickoff event included an interview with Nicole Willing, TMAA's State Chair for Tasmania, on Channel 7 news.
During the interview, Nicole highlighted the concerning number of near misses that occur daily on construction sites. "Every day on our worksites, we experience close calls and near misses between vehicles and our workers," Nicole said. "Speeding traffic poses a huge safety risk to our staff as they work to improve Tasmania's roads and infrastructure."
The 'Your Speed is Our Safety' campaign aims to remind motorists to slow down in construction zones. By being more alert and reducing speed around worksites, drivers can help prevent accidents and injuries. Nicole emphasized that road safety is a shared responsibility: "We're urging all motorists to make worker safety their priority and slow down on the roads."
