Regional road toll a 'hidden crisis'

Country motorists targeted in new campaign

Member for Wagga Daryl Maguire has welcomed the first ever comprehensive road safety education campaign to target regional motorists, driving home the message that too many country people are dying on the state’s roads.

Saving Lives on Country Roads aims to highlight the hidden crisis unfolding almost daily on the regional road network, which is devastating families and local communities.

Mr Maguire says we need to face up to the fact that far too many country people are dying on our roads, here in the Wagga electorate 21 people have lost their lives and 395 people were seriously injured between 2012 and 2016.
