For the seventh summer in a row, Mornington Peninsula Shire, in conjunction with Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation and Victoria Police, will implement the ‘Holiday Time’ road safety campaign in several high-pedestrian activity areas.
Colourful road safety banners and signs will be placed at key tourist locations and main roads to remind drivers and pedestrians about road safety during the holiday period.
Signage specially designed to appeal to children with phrases such as ‘Slow Down, Kids Around’ and ‘Hold my Hand’ are being installed in towns along Point Nepean Road such as Dromana, Rosebud, Rye and Sorrento.

Quotes attributable to Mayor Councillor Steve Holland:
“School holiday periods create a surge in the population where thousands of children will be on our local roads over the holiday period.
“Holiday Time signage is a highly visible and timely reminder about the importance of road safety.
“Both residents and visitors alike should be more aware of the increase in pedestrian activity on the Peninsula and stay vigilant.”
