Victoria is heading for its lowest ever road toll. http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,24838602-661,00.html In part it also says... '"This figure doesn't take into account the hidden road toll - the many people injured on our roads every day." 'Mr Reed said 7,870 serious injuries were reported to police last year as a result of road accidents, with many of those injured needing help for life.' Anyone here know what the stats for injuries or even the crash rate of motor vehicles and how these figures compare to previous years? It's one thing to claim that the road toll is lower and then to attribute that to speed enforcement, drug, drink driving campaigns and so on. But if it's only due to say, better car technologies and the crash rate remains the same then it's all for naught.
