Look Out, Think Ahead

25 September 2013

Circular Head Mayor Daryl Quilliam today launched the Look Out, Think Ahead campaign.

“Council has launched this campaign in response to concerns about road kill from the community,” Mayor Quilliam said.

“However, rather than focusing on this one area, the intention was to also look at other hazards on our roads, such as milk tankers, cattle, ATVs, school buses, tractors and more.”

Mayor Quilliam said the campaign included brochures and bumper stickers, which would be reinforced with road safety messages and banners.

“At the end of the day this is all about raising awareness on our roads and getting people to drive to the conditions,” Mayor Quilliam said.

“Look Out, Think Ahead was chosen as the campaign name, because of the connection to Council’s Look Out For Your Mates campaign, which was highly successful in reducing risk taking behaviour in our community such as speed, inattention, not wearing seat belts and drink driving.”

Mayor Quilliam said the campaign was supported by the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources through the Community Road Safety Partnership and the Circular Head Chronicle.

Council has also placed forms from the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program in the Council office to assist with the reporting of any devils killed on Tasmanian roads.
