The Liberal National Government today committed a further $21,330 to community road safety initiatives to help raise awareness of road safety across Western Australia.
Deputy Premier and Road Safety Minister Liza Harvey said the range of grassroots projects in the latest round of the Community Grants Program was inspiring.
"There's a great variety, including a football carnival where the players pledge to drink only water straight after the game," Mrs Harvey said.
"Importantly, all of these projects help to educate the local community about the importance of road safety in WA."
The Community Grants Program is administered through the Road Safety Commission and funded by the Road Trauma Trust Account.
The Minister said the State Government had committed $360,000 to community grants in the 2015-16 financial year.
