Andrew fighting for safer school zones (March 2012)

Glass House parents should feel that their children are safe when going to and from school, especially within the school zone.

 Most of you know I have five children so I am only too aware of the importance of protecting our kids safety especially when they are travelling to and from school.

The LNP has been clear in its commitment to improving the safety of children near schools by combating the surge in speeding through school zones.

 The main aim is to stop people speeding through school zones in the first place and to back this up the LNP will spend $10 million over four years to improve the visibility of speed limit signs in these areas.

 The LNP will install flashing school zone signals outside at least 75 schools per year.

 Those schools across Queenslandwhere there is a significant crash history, a high level of car and pedestrian traffic, higher speed limits or visibility problems will be among the first to receive the electronic signs.

 As part of my ongoing commitment to the Glass House electorate, I will be fighting for these flashing lights at both theMaleny State School and the Wamuran State School.
