Slow Down in Our Street is a local road safety project jointly funded by NSW Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) and Ku-ring-gai Council.
Every driver travelling on Ku-ring-gai roads is asked to Slow Down in Our Street and make our local roads safer for all road users.
Speed is the highest identifiable factor in crashes within Ku-ring-gai LGA. RMS data shows that there were 268 recorded crashes in the Ku-ring-gai local government area in 2016 with speed being a factor in 12% of these crashes.
The likelihood of being in a crash, resulting in a serious casualty, rises significantly with even minor changes in travelling speed.
Australian research shows that the risk of a serious casualty crash doubles with just a 5 km/h speed increase on 60 km/h urban roads.
Council will also be spreading the Slow Down message via social media, outdoor advertising and Police enforcement where possible.
