Australia's road toll is falling in every state except one

The latest Australian road toll shows the number of road-related deaths per month is declining in all states except Queensland, but the national total is still tracking almost 11 per cent behind the nine-year road safety target for the end of 2020. According to June 2020 statistics released by the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE), there were 78 deaths on Australia's roads last month – a reduction on the five-year average for June of 98 deaths.
