Broadley, Catherine

School Safety

2002

Queensland Transport is continuously attempting to improve the safety of all road users. This paper is about two recent initiatives implemented at supervised school crossings throughout Queensland. The introduction of a new crossing warrant that incorporates a risk assessment formula is one initiative. The other initiative is the introduction of high visibility safety vests in conjunction with the new Australian Standard AS/NZS 4602.1999.
