    I'm very curious as to how many councils, consultants or organisations associated with IPWEA have taken on Fatality Free Friday (today 31/5/13).

    Hi Jason,

    Gosford City Council took on Fatality Free Friday with a strong internal promotion by holding a morning tea to sign the pledge poster with the GM and Mayor present to 'cut the cake'.

    Awareness was also raised through Councils Twitter and Facebook accounts before and on the day and through other less formal networks plus a formal media release issued.

    It was organised by Councils newly recruited Road Safety Officer Deborah Batey and the first time Council has promoted this with a total of 67 pledges/signatures that morning and probably many more who couldn't make it but pledged on line.

    I don't think I actually signed up this year but I have previously.

    As a cyclist who sees so much poor driver behaviour, these days I personally try to keep every Friday fatality free.

    Jason,

    Our Road safety Officer embraced FFF & posted an advertisement & information on our internal intranet at Wyong Shire Council.
