A total of 24 Western Australian community groups will share in $49,570 thanks to the first round of the Liberal National Government's Road Safety Community Grants Program for 2016-17.
Deputy Premier and Road Safety Minister Liza Harvey said the latest round of road safety grants supported local communities producing projects with a road safety focus.
"The grants will be used at a grassroots level for road safety projects and events, such as the City of Bunbury RoadWise Committee's 'M8 the call can W8' campaign against using your mobile phone behind the wheel," Ms Harvey said.
"Road safety is a shared responsibility and these grants will continue to encourage community groups to participate in a range of road safety initiatives."
