Mackay has had a number of fatalities and serious injuries, across the “ work out” cohort. Many community members have raised the issue of walkers, runners and cyclists doing more to reduce risk of vehicle impact by wearing higher visibility clothing, lighting etc.
The project will aim to raise the awareness of the dangers of not being visible when working out near road traffic. Specifically, it will target joggers, walkers and bike riders to wear high visibility clothing and or lighting.
The campaign will aim to make these activities safer by educating participants to be more visible when working out whereby reducing the incidence of injuries and making their activities safer.
RAAG would welcome interest from “partners” to promote this project.
