The safety of all road users continues to be a priority and due to the current restrictions the art competition was promoted online this year and once again the standard of drawings submitted was amazing across all ages. The competition reinforces the message of road safety, encourages school children to use very unique drawings to highlight how to avoid various dangers on our roads.”
