Get your walking shoes on this Friday, 19 May 2017, for National Walk Safely to School Day and make important steps towards a healthier future.
Now in its 18th year, National Walk Safely to School Day (WSTSD) is an annual event encouraging all primary school children to walk and commute safely to school not just on the national day, but every day.
The community event aims to raise awareness of the health, road safety, transport and environmental benefits that regular walking can provide for children’s long-term well-being. The event also promotes reduced car-dependency, greater use of public transport and builds a sense of community while providing children the opportunity to learn how to cross roads safely
If you live a long distance away from school, try parking the car 10 minutes away and then walk. Adults need to supervise children under 10 years old by holding hands when near or crossing roads.

To demonstrate the safety benefits of newer cars, ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) crash tested a 2015 Toyota Corolla with a 1998 Toyota Corolla. The test found that the driver of the older Corolla would likely have died as a result of the 64km/h collision, whereas the driver of the newer Corolla — which has a five-star safety rating — would have sustained minor injuries.
Safety will soon be improved at the Angle Vale Road intersection with Curtis Road and McGee Road at Penfield Gardens.
A total of 52 kilometres of audio tactile linemarking will be installed on various roads in the northern area of South Australia with works commencing Wednesday, 5 April 2017.
