South Australians are being asked to have their say about road safety measures.
The state government has launched a Community Attitudes Survey that seeks the community’s views about reducing deaths and injuries on our roads. The survey focuses on some key areas such as speeding, alcohol and drugs, mobile phone use and driver training and licensing.
An Issues Paper has also been released which provides background about road safety in South Australia and outlines various road safety measures that have been proven to reduce road trauma.
The survey is the next phase of consultation for South Australia’s Road Safety Strategy that aims to reduce the road toll to less than 80 fatalities by 2020.
The Motor Accident Commission will also use the survey results to help with the development of road safety educational programs.
Both the Issues Paper and Community Attitudes Survey are available online at www.yoursay.sa.gov.au/roadsafety. The survey will be open until 5pm, Friday, 29 May.
