Australia's rural road safety action plan

By: Publication details: Canberra Federal Office of Road Safety, FORS. Monograph 9, 1996Description: 4 sSubject(s): Online resources: Abstract: Rural road safety is a major issue in Australia. In recent years, gains in road safety in rural areas have not matched those made in urban areas (Monograph 2, Trends in Fatal Crashes on Rural Roads). Furthermore, research has shown that country drivers are twice as likely to be involved in a fatal crash as city drivers (Monograph 5, Driving in Unfamiliar Surroundings Part 3: City Driving/Country Driving). Country drivers are not necessarily less skilled than their city counterparts. Country drivers drive longer distances often on roads of inferior quality to those found in urban areas.
