‘Keep left’ stickers are being placed on the dashboard of hire cars throughout the State as a vital reminder for international drivers and to help keep WA roads safe.

In time for the busy holiday period, the State Government has teamed up with seven hire car companies to display the bold yellow and black stickers.

Acting Road Safety Commissioner Roger Farley said they would play a big role in reducing road trauma, by eliminating the moment of confusion some international drivers may have when entering the road.

“As soon as an international driver gets into their hire car, this sticker reminds them to drive on the left hand side of the road in Australia,” he said.

RedSands Campers, Europcar, Thrifty, National, Enterprise, Redspot, Alamo and Ace Car Rentals will all add the stickers to the interior of their rental cars.

Mr Farley also encouraged West Aussies who lend cars to family visiting from overseas to place the stickers — available from the Road Safety Commission — on their dashboards.
