Your Speed is Our Safety

Reduced speed limits and other traffic management are important for protecting road workers, and also to reduce the risks to the travelling public, including the risk of damage to vehicles.

Driver behaviour, such as inattention and failing to comply with speed limits in work sites, can lead to serious or fatal injuries to road workers. In the past seven years, two road workers have been killed on Tasmania’s roads. Seven road workers have been injured as a result of crashes at road works sites since 2005.

The Your Speed is Our Safety campaign is a partnership between the Tasmanian Government, Civil Contractors Federation and the Road Safety Advisory Council with the assistance of the Traffic Management Association of Tasmania.
