Logan residents urged to join the drive to reduce road trauma

City of Logan residents are being urged to keep road safety top of mind as the annual Fatality Free Friday approaches.

Logan Mayor Luke Smith said Logan City Council was proud to support this important day as part of its SafeRoads4Logan initiative.

“Fatality Free Friday is held each year across Australia to promote safer roads,” Mayor Smith said.

"Road accidents – particularly fatal accidents – are not only traumatic for families and friends, but they can also have deep and long-lasting impacts on the wider community.”

Roads and Water Infrastructure Committee Chairman, Councillor Phil Pidgeon, said Council would be holding a Fatality Free Friday event at Logan Central McDonalds car park tomorrow (Friday, 26 May).

"We'll feature a Department of Transport and Main Roads education trailer, a Queensland Police Service display, a display focused on our RU1M bicycle safety campaign and our road safety mascot, Patrick Pace Car.

"While Fatality Free Friday aims for no road deaths for one day, drivers should think consciously about their decisions every single time they get behind the wheel."

The display will be open to the public from noon to 6pm with the formal presentation at 2.15pm on Friday 26 May at Logan Central McDonalds car park.

“We encourage the community to come along and visit this special display,” Cr Pidgeon said.
