Campaign to stick it up speedsters

EVERYONE’S being urged to jump on board a campaign to bin speeding drivers in the lead up to National Road Safety Week (May 5-12).

The ‘Slow Down in Canterbury Bankstown’ campaign is offering free reflective stickers that can be placed on household bins to remind drivers about slowing down.
Mayor Bilal El-Hayek said managing speed was everyone’s responsibility and we must all work together to keep ourselves and our communities safe.
“Putting a sticker on your bin doesn’t cost you a cent but if it means saving someone’s life, it is priceless,” Mayor El-Hayek said.
“These stickers are a strong visual reminder to all those driving past to slow down. When you roll out your bin to the kerb, you could be saving a life.”
According to the latest statistics, speeding drivers were responsible for 40 per cent of road deaths in NSW alone. In 2021, there were 75 crashes involving speed in Canterbury Bankstown.
“We want to encourage greater awareness of the dangers of speeding and Road Safety Week is an important reminder for us all,” Mayor El-Hayek said.
“But it should not be limited to one week in the year! It is up to all of us to do our part and drive responsibly.”
Residents can pick up their free reflective bin stickers at Canterbury Bankstown’s Libraries and Customer Service Centres or order them online at
