Road Safety

Road safety affects everyone. That includes drivers, public transport users, pedestrians, and people on bikes or scooters.

We work with Transport for NSW, Police, schools, other councils and the community to keep people safe on our roads.

Wollongong City Council is also part of the Local Government Road Safety Program.

Some of the things we do to improve road safety include awareness campaigns, workshops for road users, making sure roads are well designed, and managing local traffic rules.

Keeping children safe around schools is a big focus of our road safety work.

Rangers and local police regularly patrol school zones. Increased fines and demerit points apply for people breaking the rules in school zones.

The two biggest issues around schools are speeding and parking.

We’ve put together some resources for schools to download and share in their newsletters and websites:

You'll also find information about safety around schools on the NSW Centre for Road Safety's website.

For more information about safety around schools, call us on (02) 4227 7111 or email our Road Safety Officer.

Learning to drive can be both exciting and intimidating. We regularly run programs for learner drivers and their supervisors to make the experience a little easier, and help people to become safer drivers.

Learn Safe Workshops

These free sessions provide practical advice for supervisors of learner drivers. They cover ways to encourage safe driving behaviour, the log book, and licence requirements.

Learner Log Book Runs

Join other L-plate drivers to improve your driving skills and gain more experience in a range of conditions. Learners and their supervisors will be given a mix of experiences, including a Random Breath Test and Driver reviver fatigue stop.

This program is a partnership between Council, PCYC and the NSW Police.

There’s no cost, but you should have at least 40 hours of driving experience to take part.

If you've got children in your car, you need to make sure you have the right restraints to protect them. Here are some links to help you out:
