Safe school travel

An image of a cartoon from the safe school travel brochure. Each year, a number of students are injured as they travel to and from school. The Department of Transport and Main Roads is committed to reducing injuries and fatalities for all road users. One way this is achieved is by providing the safest possible journey to and from Queensland schools.

If a school community identifies a safety concern it should establish a Safe School Travel Committee. The committee should include the Principal, parents/carers, teachers and other interested parties (for example, local police or a local government representative). Schools should contact their local Road Safety Advisor who will assist the committee and provide relevant resources, information and application forms where appropriate.

We all have a role to play in school road safety, and with a little extra care, the roads can be safer for all students.
