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.

Kia Stinger joins Western Australia Police force

Western Australia has joined Queensland in adding the Kia Stinger to its police fleet. A fleet of 50 300S liftbacks will be hitting West Australian streets over the next 12 months, filling the gap left by the Holden Commodore SS and Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo. The Queensland Police Force stumped for the Stinger 330S as well, foregoing the Si's bigger infotainment screen, bigger wheels and leather seats in favour of the S's identical performance and lower entry price.
