A Red Spot is a point of congestion which frustrates motorists. It may be at a roundabout, a traffic light, a road or an intersection.
Congestion causes delays, which can lead to a reduction in productivity. It can also increase personal stress and driver frustration. The RAC advocates for a cost efficient, convenient and reliable transport network and is committed to ensuring Western Australians can move around their community efficiently. We need to work together to reduce road congestion as it will worsen with the increasing WA population. This is why the RAC is taking action to ensure transport road authorities address congestion by improving WA’s Transport network.
Red Spots WA begins on Saturday 21 July and finishes six weeks later on Saturday 1 September 2012.
To nominate a Red Spot, visit www.redspotswa.com.au
, or complete a nomination form at any of the RAC’s Member and Auto Service Centres.
You can nominate as many Red Spots as you like, however, you can’t nominate the same Red Spot more than once. For example, you can’t nominate Mill Point and Labouchere Roads, South Perth more than once.
The nomination results will be shared with relevant road authorities, the media and Members of Parliament to encourage improvements to these Red Spots. The RAC will collate this information and commission a report on the findings. This information will be used to create greater awareness of the congestion problems throughout Western Australia by raising the profile of congestion throughout the state.
Participants can only nominate a point of congestion in Western Australia.
Yes, the RAC will share this information with the public through the media and other channels. This information will also be passed on to relevant road authorities and local Members of Parliament.
