Stay safe this Easter
Mayor Mark Jamieson and Queensland Police Sunshine Coast District Superintendent Darryl Johnson today urged residents and visitors to the Coast to keep safety, patience and respect in the forefront of their minds ahead of the Easter break.
Mayor Jamieson said a relatively incident-free Australia Day had set a great example for the local community that he hoped would be followed over the next four days.
“Easter is a very special time of the year, and also one of our busiest on the Sunshine Coast as holidaymakers come to experience everything that we have to offer,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“We want everyone in our community to enjoy their Easter break, have a great time with their family and friends and to support our local businesses which are at the heart of our economy.
“At all times, and especially over the holidays, it’s important that we always show respect for each other and not put ourselves or anyone else in danger with our actions.
“Please be patient if the roads are little bit busier than usual, or if there’s a wait for a taxi, and don’t take any risks by drinking and driving.”
As part of the Easter campaign, council will be handing out copies of the brochure “Are you really ok to drive” at licensed premises in Mooloolaba, Ocean Street and Caloundra.”
