Police have teamed up with the Boyup Brook Community Resource Centre to reward drivers for good behaviour on the roads.

The program is part of Safe Drivers Month, an initiative created by Boyup Brook Police in conjunction with the community resource centre.

Officer-in-charge Sgt James Gaunt said the objective was to reward drivers for doing the right thing and boost spending in the local community.

“Building relationships with other stakeholders in and out of the town is important and this initiative has provided a good outcome for a number of drivers,” he said. “The objective is to reward drivers who are observed doing the right thing, whilst out and about driving around, and for the money to be spent within the local community.”

Recipients will have the chance to receive fuel vouchers for either Caltex or BP petrol stations as well as reusable coffee cups, donated by Roadwise.

Support for the program was provided by the Caltex Picton depot as well as Warren-Blackwood MLA Terry Redman.

CRC manager Jodi Nield said the centre was excited to be involved in a program that promoted road safety, forged partnerships and supported business.
