The Bass Coast Community Road Safety Committee is urging community members and visitors to be safe when driving in Bass Coast during the busy summer period.

“With only a few days left before Christmas, life gets hectic and we are encouraging all drivers to keep paying attention across Bass Coast during the holiday period,” Local Area Commander Bass Coast PSA, Inspector Graeme Sprague said.

“We urge everyone to join the ‘Save My Seat’ safe driver campaign.

“We want as many people as possible to make a commitment to friends and family to take care on the roads over the holiday period so they can be all sitting together at the Christmas table next year.”

The ‘Save My Seat’ campaign was developed by Sergeant Jason Hullick, the officer in charge of the Bass Coast Highway Patrol in Wonthaggi.

“When drivers get behind the wheel of the car, we want them to take a moment to think about their loved ones and what actions they can take to be a safer driver,” Sgt Hullick said.

“Comply with all road rules, put a seatbelt on, slow down and arrive at your destination safely.”

The Bass Coast Community Road Safety Committee is reminding people that everybody has a key role to play in preventing death and serious injury on the road.
