A sobering look at deaths and injuries on our roads

Injury Matters | February 14, 2018

Did you know that more than 48,000 people have been killed on Australian roads since 1989?

Did you also know that of those, more than 20,000 weren’t those behind the wheel.

Did you know that seven out of each ten fatalities on our roads are men and that the majority of deaths and injuries can be prevented.

And that last year, in 2017, 1225 Australians lost their lives due to a road crash leaving behind shattered mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents, friends, colleagues and many more.

This comprehensive report breaking down deaths and injuries on our roads across Australia since 1989 is certainly sobering reading, not just for those with a road safety focus but for each and every Australian. 

Don’t let your family and friends become a statistic.
