Six Northern Sydney Councils - Northern Beaches, Hornsby, Ku-ring-gai, Lane Cove, North Sydney and City of Ryde – have joined forces to produce a 2020 calendar featuring vintage road safety poster art.

Chief Inspector Phillip Brooks, from the NSW Police Force Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, said despite the fun look, the calendar also conveys a serious message.

“Unfortunately, much of the poor road safety behaviour that was costing lives 60 years ago is still relevant today,” Mr Brooks said.

“Research shows that many people still need the occasional reminder on road rules and correct behaviour on our roads to ensure the safety of everyone.”

The retro style road safety posters featured in the calendar have turned out to be timeless.

“Frayed tempers cause accidents”, urges another post.  ‘Road rage’ was also causing crashes in the 1950s, just like in today’s world.

“This calendar demonstrates that the road safety messages of the 1950s are still relevant for us today, especially with the increase in congestion and distractions on our roads,’’ Chief Inspector Brooks added.

The calendar also includes a road safety game for children.

The annual Road Safety Calendar has been delivered to Northern Sydney residents since 2001 with the aim of educating and encouraging positive behaviour for all road users, across all ages.

For a copy of the calendar, which is now available, be sure to visit libraries and customer service centres at participating local councils.
