'Opportunity to make a difference' - Road safety forum to be held in Mandurah on September 2

Local residents are being encouraged to attend a road safety forum being held in Mandurah on September 2.

The Road Safety Council is consulting with communities across Western Australia on a new road safety strategy for the state.

In WA, more than 2200 people are killed or seriously injured annually on our roads - meaning a life lost or changed every four hours.

Mandurah MP David Templeman said the target was zero deaths and serious injuries by 2050.

"I invite you to attend a community forum on September 2, which will be led by the Council and supported by staff from the Road Safety Commission and other key agencies," he said.

"This community consultation is your opportunity to make a difference for decades to come. I urge all residents in the region to consider attending or making a submission.

"If you are unable to attend, feedback can be provided via the Imagine Zero website."

The forum will be held at 6pm on Monday, September 2 at Bortolo Pavilion, 1 Bortolo Drive.
