    The long Easter weekend is a great opportunity for individuals and families across Australia to get out to some fantastic events, such as the Sydney Royal Easter Show, Byron Bay Bluesfest and National Folk Festival.

    With the large number of people expected to attend these events, it's important to have appropriate safety measures in place to help look out for the safety of attendees.

    Many of these festivals and gatherings are family-friendly events, which means that there will be many young kids around the roads.

    Traffic control equipment such as Variable Message Signs (VMS) are often used at Easter events to help warn motorists to be more careful around the roads, with more pedestrians expected to be around.

    These VMS signs usually give a short message telling motorists to expect delays or drive to a certain speed from certain hours of the day.

    Pedestrian barriers are also commonly used at Easter festivals to help direct attendees safely along the path, away from passing vehicles.

    Other traffic safety equipment such as ramps may also be used to help families using prams cross the road safely.

    If you are organising a Easter event of a large scale, visit your local Kennards Hire branch to pick up your traffic control equipment.
