Have the Conversation - your driving on Wheatbelt roads

Have the Conversation

Police in the Wheatbelt patrol local roads enforcing the road rules every day. We are always talking with drivers and their passengers about their driving behaviour and how choices can lead to consequences, which can include police enforcement or worse still, injury or death.

Wheatbelt Police have created a series of five innovative videos which will be released to the public. Their intent? To generate conversation with the community about the impact of driver decisions, inviting you all to ‘have the conversation’ about how your driving behaviour can be the key to #saferdrivers on Wheatbelt roads, as we head into the busy festive holiday period.

The video format may seem familiar to many of you! Have you seen James Corden Carpool Karaoke?... Instead of James you have the OIC of Northam Police Station and singing is replaced by a Wheatbelt yarn (the conversation) with members of the local community.

We hope you think it’s good enough to share and to keep the conversation going with your friends and loved ones, in a bid to help us continue to influence driver behaviour.
