Rangers launch education campaign to keep kids safe in school zones

As school returns after the summer break, Port Stephens Council rangers will be reminding drivers to pay attention to the road signs to help keep children safe in school zones.


Council’s Environmental Health and Compliance Coordinator Marc Goodall says it’s all about education.

“At the start of the school year, our rangers take the opportunity to educate drivers — particularly those dropping their kids off for the first time — about the different signs and rules around school zones,” Mr Goodall said.

“We focus on educating drivers by issuing warnings and helping them to understand why the rules are in place. Our rangers will be handing out information flyers to encourage safe parking around schools.
