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.

Traffic rules and parking restrictions are in place to improve safety around schools

The following information is a guide to help keep children safe in school zones.

School Zone Parking

Watch the video below to refresh your knowledge on school zone parking rules and signage at your child's school.

We've also put together a glove box guide you can keep in the car. Download your copy below:

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.
