Road risk higher in the country

City of Bunbury RoadWise has launched its Road Ribbon for Road Safety campaign in an effort to spread its message that too many people are dying on regional roads.

Bunbury RoadWise Committee member Karen Steele said losing family and friends had a “devastating” effect, especially over the holiday period.

“You are more likely to die in a road crash in the country than metro areas,” Cr Steele said.

“This Christmas, think about your driving on the roads and the effect it could have on others.

“We should not accept that anyone should die or be seriously injured on our roads.”
