Road Safety Centre

The Road Safety Centre is located at Thebarton Police Barracks and offers road safety education sessions to schools, businesses and community groups. Find out more information on the road safety sessions offered by the Road Safety Centre on the Road safety session page.

The Road Safety Centre also produces fact sheets, posters and other resources to promote the Fatal Five and to assist in the promotion of road safety.

SAPOL's mock roadway

The Road Safety Centre features a mock roadway where children can be educated on the road rules, pedestrian and cycle safety in a safe environment. The mock roadway helps children to become familiar with:

  • correct road signage
  • pedestrian safety
  • road rules.

The roadway includes:

  • an intersection with traffic lights
  • pedestrian crossings
  • a roundabout
  • traffic signs.

The mock roadway is available for community use on weekends and after 2.30 pm on weekdays (including school holidays). If the 'DO NOT ENTER' signs are up, please do not use the mock roadway as it is booked for a SAPOL session. Call (08) 8207 4668 to check availability. The mock roadway is available free of charge but participants need to bring their own bike and helmet. The mock roadway traffic lights operate seven days a week between 8.00 am and 6.00 pm and 8.00 am and 8.00 pm during daylight saving.

Please see 'Road safety sesisons' for details of the road safety education offered by the Road Safety Centre.

Volunteering opportunities

Volunteers are central to the success of the Road Safety Centre and we are always looking for new volunteers to join our team.

Volunteers provide assistance and support with the delivery of road safety school sessions at the Road Safety Centre. Volunteers work weekdays (including school holidays) to assist the team of police officers (road safety educators) deliver the programs to students who attend the Centre from across the state. A session typically involves a classroom presentation followed by a practical session on the mock roadway.
