NRMA proposes $2b NSW, ACT roads upgrade to save 16,000 lives

The NRMA’s Australian Road Assessment Program (AusRAP) has revealed that $2 billion worth of road safety improvements for NSW and ACT roads could prevent almost 16,000 fatalities and injuries over the next two decades. AusRAP found that a government expenditure of $1.96 billion, spent on roads including the Pacific, Mitchell, Newell and Barton highways, could prevent 15,735 fatalities and injuries and $7.1 billion in future crash-related expenses.

ACT to introduce a ban on smoking in cars with kids

New legislation by the ACT Government will be handed to the Legislative Assembly today giving police the power to fine motorists who smoke in cars with child passengers on board. The new law won't be part of the demerit points scheme though, so drivers will not be capable of losing their licence due to the law.
