The provisional road toll for 2016 is 326, Associate Transport Minister David Bennett says. “The road toll is not just a number — every figure represents a life needlessly lost and family, friends and communities grieving. Our thoughts are with those that have lost loved ones on our roads over the past year” Mr Bennett says.
Associate Transport Minister David Bennett is encouraging road users to do the right thing and travel safely over the summer holidays. "This is a special time of the year to celebrate with friends and family so we want to ensure everyone travelling on our roads gets to their destination safely,” Mr Bennett says.
