Road Safety Week: Don’t get shattered

Tasmania Police on Tuesday, 03/05/2016 08:24 AEST

Speeding is a factor in almost half the road fatalities in Tasmania and more than a third of serious injuries.

And half of those fatalities and serious injuries are in 100km/h or 110km/h zones, many in rural Tasmania.

Road Safety Advisory Council Chair Jim Cox said today reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries was every road user’s responsibility.

“Ask yourself: what can I do to help make our roads safer? One answer is to drive to the conditions which means going at a speed that’s safe for the weather and road conditions and that may be well below the speed limit.

“The faster a vehicle is going, the less time there is to react to the unexpected. Give yourself that time and slow down.”
