As Perth’s population consistently grows so too are shocking road accident statistics. Now more than ever it’s vital to follow all driving regulations and safety precautions when on the road.
Did You Know?
- 19,422 people have been killed or seriously injured on Perth metro roads in the period 2003-2102
- 52% of fatal and serious accidents happened at intersections
- Fatigue was possibly responsible for up to 30% of fatal crashes
- The age group of 17 to 24 years old made up to 26% of those killed or seriously injured
The WA government Office of Road Safety has a comprehensive list of statistics for the metro area along with all regional WA areas. See it here… WA Office of Road Safety (will open in new window).
Wearing seatbelts, following speed limits, not using mobile phones while driving, no alcohol and keeping calm are all part of maintaining safety whilst driving.
If you are tired then don’t drive. Pull over, rest or swap drivers immediately.
