South Australians making smart, safe choices behind the wheel

After a horror weekend on the state’s roads, the Motor Accident Commission (MAC) is imploring all South Australians to remain focused on road safety and the positive achievements to date and not accept the recent spike in road trauma.

MAC Road Safety Communications Manager, Matt Hanton said in 2016, we had a record low road toll, achieving reductions in fatalities and serious injuries.

“The 2016 road toll was a significant accomplishment that all South Australians should be proud of whilst not becoming complacent.

“Sadly, we have lost 57 lives on our roads this year already, an increase of 9 from this time in 2016”, said Mr Hanton.

Positively, at this same time, there has been a reduction in serious injuries, down 19% compared to this time last year.

“That’s 85 fewer people seriously injured on our roads this year to date, a significant step, that should not be over-looked.

“The majority of South Australians are doing the right thing, taking responsibility and making smart, safe choices when behind the wheel.

“Unfortunately we continue to see a small minority of motorists, not following the rules, not wearing a seatbelt, driving with excessive speed, while distracted and under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

“It is these instances that end fatally, causing tragic, immeasurable losses of real people, with real families that cannot just be conveyed in a number and the heartbreaking reality is that many of these losses could have been avoided”, said Mr Hanton.
