Road safety display trailers
About the trailers
WALGA's RoadWise Program received funding through the Road Trauma Trust Account(RTTA) to build a number of road safety display trailers which aim to assist members of the community road safety network to promote road safety at community events across the state.
Fostering community support is vital for the effective implementation of Towards Zero, the WA road safety strategy and the safe system approach to road safety. The road safety display trailers will assist with generating this community support.
In regional areas, numerous community events are held each year. These events generally attract local residents and visitors, offering opportunities for increased exposure to key road safety messages and campaigns at the community level.
The trailers will complement similar trailers already in operation in some regions and provide a transportable and durable road safety resource, suitable for outdoor (and certain indoor) display purposes.
Road safety displays will be made easy with the display trailers, reducing much of the organisation and logistics required when planning a display. All resources and merchandise are contained within the trailer, which is easily transported and quick to assemble.
Road Safety Council member agencies, other road safety partners/organisations and community groups have access to the new road safety display trailers.
Trailer images and specifications
The new road safety display trailers are designed to be towed by an average medium sized vehicle - a large vehicle or 4WD is not required.
The dimensions of the trailers are:
- length: 3.4 metres
- height: 2.4 metres
- width: 1.6 metres
The trailer weighs no more then 1.5 tones fully loaded.
A built-in television, laptop, competition box, brochure displays and poster displays make promoting key road safety messages easy. An external power source or generator is required to power the lights, television and laptop.
The new trailers open up on three sides, providing enhanced access and protection from the elements. Lighting is also provided so the trailer can be used at night. Branding for the trailers aligns to Towards Zero, the new WA road safety strategy.
The new road safety display trailers are now located in six regions across WA including the Kimberley, Wheatbelt, Perth Metropolitan area, South West, Great Southern, Goldfields-Esperance.
Organisations and community groups can now book their region's display trailer for local events, tailoring the merchandise and materials on display to align with local road safety issues or campaigns.
Road safety display trailers can be booked through your local Regional Road Safety Officer and are made available free of charge.
Completion of a booking sheet is required prior to hire and an event report must be completed on return of the trailer to assist with compilation of usage statistics. Your local Road Safety Advisor will provide a copy of all forms and hire processes however sample forms are provided below:
Each trailer is generously housed by a Local Government and the hirer is required to collect and return the trailer to the host Local Government.
