NSW Road High Death Toll, Alcohol a Factor

nsw road toll


This weekend has not been a good one for NSW road safety. Four young men died in two separate accidents on New South Wales roads on Sunday, prompting police  to issue a warning to motorists to drive safely amid a spike in the state’s road toll.

Last week NSW authorities announced a taskforce to tackle the high death toll.

A 10-day blitz on road safety was undertaken by police in the state after 22 people were killed on the state’s roads in the past fortnight.

This year alone 229 people have been killed on the state’s roads. Drink and drug driving as well as speeding and fatigued driving have been identified as the main causes of the high toll.
