Road safety education

Help your learner driver be a safer driver

We are offering a free workshop to provide practical advice and help parents guide their learners to become safer drivers.

Research shows that plenty of supervised on-road experience in the first few years of driving reduces the likelihood of crashes.

Through the workshop we aim to:

  • increase parents’ confidence in supervising learner drivers
  • demonstrate the importance of on-road driving experience
  • increase understanding of the learner driver log book
  • demonstrate how to encourage safe driving behaviour, and
  • explain the licencing conditions for learner and provisional licence holders.

Where: Mechanics Institute, Page Street, Moruya

When: 6pm for a 6.30pm start, to 8.30pm, 19 February 2021

Bookings and more info: Our Road Safety Officer, Kate McDougall

Mobile phone detection cameras

Mobile phone detection cameras are now operating in Eurobodalla.

Drivers will cop a $344 fine - $457 in a school zone - and five demerit points.

Are you driving blind?

Just taking your eyes off the road for longer than two seconds doubles the risk of a crash.

A short lapse of concentration can have lifelong consequences.

Road rule reminder – vehicle passing a bicycle rider

When passing a bicycle rider all drivers and motorcycle riders must leave a distance of at least:

  • 1 metre when the speed limit is 60km/h or less
  • 1.5 metres in higher speed zones.

The rule is designed to reduce the chance of a crash when a vehicle passes a bicycle rider.

Drivers who do not comply with the rule may receive a $330 fine and two demerit points.

We work in partnership with Transport for NSW to deliver the Local Government Road Safety Program. This program allows our Road Safety Officer to implement community education campaigns that target road safety at a local level.
