Road Safety Messages
Guest blogger: Niles Elvery - Manager, Public Access, Queensland State Archives
With the festive season almost upon us, our minds start turning to holidays and family festivities. For the Police and other emergency services however the festive season marks one of the busiest times of the year.
With the increased traffic on the roads during the Christmas holiday Police issue a call to be ‘safe on the roads’ each year.
Here at Queensland State Archives we have found some examples of road safety messages throughout the years.
Queensland State Archives holds all sorts of records from Queensland government agencies. These colourful posters were issued by the Australian Road Safety Council (embodying all State Road Safety Councils). The Queensland Road Safety Council was founded on 4 July 1947 to co-ordinate the promotion of road safety activities. It was replaced in 1988 by the Traffic Safety Advisory Committee.
So remember, take extra care and drive for road happiness! Wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday period.
