Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) The Justice and Community Safety Directorate has managed a poster program and published web content addressing safe cycling. The poster program promotes the use of helmets and lights. The poster is distributed to bicycle shops, cafes and universities in Canberra prior to the end of daylight saving each year. The web content promotes the road rules and includes tips about safe cycling in the ACT. The combined cost of these programs over the last three years was approximately $14,000.
(2) The Justice and Community Safety Directorate has managed a Share the Road awareness program. The Share the Road program reminds all road users, including cyclists, to obey the road rules. It has a particular focus on being aware of vulnerable road users, which includes cyclists. The Share the Road program includes television and cinema commercials. The cost of the cycling component of this program over the last three years was approximately $52,000.
