Road Safety Report November 2019

MRAWA Safety Report November 2019 by Steve Fish

  • Current Road toll stats – 146, up from 126 same time last year – 30 motorcyclists, 13 pedestrians and 1 cyclist.

Motorcyclists represent 6% of registered vehicles in Western Australia yet we are 21% of road fatalities.

We need to lobby harder and louder to raise awareness of this and get more action from the positive action from the government to address motorcycle safety.

 

  • Attended the Vulnerable Road Users Advisory Group meeting on 12 November.

Presentations from:

Parik Lumb from the Road safety Commission on the recent Road Safety Community Forums and the process of how the Road Safety Strategy will develop in 2020

Janine Nicholas from Rider Down on First Aid for Motorcyclists

Dave Wright on the Australasian Road Safety Conference

Iain Cameron Chair of the Road Safety Council updated the group on the Road Safety Strategy.
