Northam Shire President Chris Antonio dropped into the Old Fire Station for a cuppa and chat with the Shedmen on Friday, December 7 and while they were at it they took the opportunity to remind the community to stay safe on our roads this festive season.
A spokesman from Northam Men’s Shed said road safety is making progress.
“50 years ago, there were 3,609 people who died on Australian roads, in 2017 there were 1,318, which is a huge leap in the right direction Towards Zero,” they said.
“But the holiday season is a time to be vigilant.
“If you are driving around Northam or to festivities with your loved ones further away, make sure you get there in one piece by not drink-driving, driving at a safe speed, put the mobile away, put your seatbelt on, plan your journey and don’t take risks.”
