2012 Road toll - lowest on record

04 Jan 2013

South Australia has achieved its lowest road toll since records were kept – with serious injuries also reaching record lows.

Speaking at the New Years Eve road toll wrap, Minister for Road Safety Jennifer Rankine said 94 lives were tragically lost on the State’s roads.

Previously, the record low was in 2008 when 99 people died.

“Not only has there been a significant decrease in the number of deaths, but for the first time, serious injuries have dropped below 800. Ten years ago, this figure was more than 1500,” Ms Rankine said.

“While this reduction in both deaths and serious injuries reflects a considerable achievement, there are still 94 families who are devastated by the loss of their loved ones.”
