Our friendly Road Safety Officer in Queanbeyan-Palerang has sent in this news item about the 2020 October “Joe Rider” campaign. It’s a key part of Motorcycle Awareness Month, and we’ll most likely see these riders on our roads.
Spot Joe Rider and share the road in 2020.
Joe Rider Motorcycle Safety – Report Sightings and go into the draw to win fuel vouchers.
Council’s popular motorcycle safety campaign Joe Rider has returned for 2020. The evidence shows being aware of motorcycle riders on the road is a key factor in ensuring their safety.
This campaign kicks off just as the weather is warming up and we see more local riders hitting the roads to commute to work or take a leisure ride on weekend.
Council has partnered with rider training centre Stay Upright and other motorcyclists in the area who will be wearing high-vis Joe Rider vests while riding the roads from 10-25 October to increase awareness of motorcycle riders.
If you notice a motorcyclists while you’re driving, whether they were wearing the ‘Joe Rider’ vest or not, report your sighting once you have reached your destination at
www.qprc.nsw.gov.au/joe-rider and go into the draw to win fuel vouchers.
There are five $50 fuel vouchers to be won and one $150 fuel voucher to win for the person that reports the most sightings. We can all help keep motorcyclists safe by checking twice for bikes
