Community Support: Speed Past School Buses 22-Jul-2012

July 22, 2012 10:44 pm

We were delighted with the feedback we received from RWNZ members and other groups interested in safety issues, following our call for an indication of community support for active 20kmh signs on school buses. Click the link below to see the feedback summary. 

In terms of next steps, TERNZ have been asked by NZTA and the Ministry of Education to apply for funding from the Road Safety Trust for a 50 bus trial of the active 20kmh signs.

Jackie Edkins, RWNZ’s information officer, will be going to the Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference in Wellington in October, co-presenting a paper with TERNZ on its school bus safety research.

School bus safety is an ongoing project for RWNZ and we will keep you updated as the 20kmh signage project develops.
