A safety boost for Eumundi State School

Member for Noosa, Glen Elmes has welcomed the news that flashing school zone signs will be installed at Eumundi State School.

“Last year I was approached by the school’s P&C and have since worked hard with the Government to get the approval for the installation of these safety lights and I am delighted to be able to announce this great news” said Mr Elmes.

“Flashing lights are being installed at schools where there is a significant crash history or a high level of car and pedestrian traffic or higher speed limits or visibility problems.

“The lights act as an extra reminder for parents and other motorists and signal them to slow down in and around school areas while young Queenslanders make their way to and from school.

“Motorists need to remember children are unpredictable when crossing streets and by slowing own you are diffusing a potentially dangerous situation and we all need to play our part, government, schools, parents, drivers and the children,” Glen Elmes said.
