Driveway Safety Display Kit
Traffic related injury is one of the leading causes of death and serious injury for young children. Whenever cars or other vehicles are about, young children are at risk. This includes roads (public and private), car parks, footpaths, driveways, caravan parks, farms and unfenced yards.
The Healthy Cities Illawarra Driveway Safety Display Kit highlights the difficulty drivers have in seeing small children behind reversing vehicles. It can be used as one of the many strategies to help prevent the tragic death or injury of young children, especially in home driveways.
To book the Driveway Safety Display Kit contact the Facilitator at Sanctuary Point Connect on 4443 0520.
The kit may be borrowed for up to 2 weeks for each service. There are instructions for how to use the kit in the case. It is suitable for playgroups, child care services and schools.
When making a booking please provide the Facilitator with 2 preferred pick-up dates.
Please note each service is responsible for organising the collection and return either to Sanctuary Point Connect or to the next service using the kit. To make it easy for you and Sanctuary Point Connect please try and organise in a cluster of Services.
