Australia not road safety leaders anymore

AUSTRALIA has fallen behind when it comes to road safety.

That's the scathing assessment of the nation by Australasian College of Road Safety president Lachlan McIntosh.

In the past 12 months there have been 1200 road deaths across the country.

"Although historically Australia has been a world-leader in road safety, we have now fallen behind and we can and must improve," Mr McIntosh said.

"Road safety is everyone's responsibility.

"We have to work hard to have a towards zero approach to our actions for reducing deaths and serious injuries."
