Blessing of the Roads 2019: Mandurah motorists urged to take care across Easter

With the Easter long weekend approaching and many of us planning to travel, motorists have been reminded to take care on the roads.

The City of Mandurah is once again joining forces with RoadWise to promote the Blessing of the Roads campaign.

The campaign places focus on working together to achieve the long-term vision of zero fatalities or serious injuries.

City of Mandurah mayor Rhys Williams said the campaign was an important reminder that "we should not accept that anyone should die or be seriously injured on our roads".

"Easter is one of the peak holiday periods for road travel, so it is important to take time to think about road safety and the impact it can have on families, friends and communities," Mr Williams said.

"I'm urging our community to plan ahead, don't drive tired or distracted to ensure we all have a happy and safe journey.

"It is also important to recognise and thank our emergency services, local police and volunteers for helping to make our roads safer." 

The Blessing of the Roads Ceremony will take place at Christ's Church Anglican Parish of Mandurah on Sunday, April 14 at 9.30am.
