Action needed to save lives on regional Victorian roads
With the state's road toll increasing, new forums ask for community input into how we can prevent loss of lives and injuries on regional roads.
Road safety experts are tackling the state’s burgeoning road toll head on, launching a series of community forums in regional centres around Victoria.
With the road toll up more than 55 per cent on 2018 so far this year, key representatives from the state government, TAC, Regional Roads Victoria, the Department of Transport, police, SES and local government, are attending a series of events in Ballarat, Marysville, Shepparton, Sale, Geelong, Portland, Bendigo and Mildura to listen to community concerns.
Regional road deaths are overrepresented in the road toll.
