National Road Safety Strategy will fail without further federal funding, AAA says

The Australian Automobile Association (AAA) has called on the Turnbull Government to dig deep and invest $150,000 into the National Road Safety Strategy (NRSS), launched in 2011 to help combat the country's road toll. The NRSS was developed with the aim of cutting Australia's road toll by "at least" 30 per cent, by 2020. In 2011, there were 1291 fatalities on the nation's roads, while the year to September 2016 showed 1273 deaths.

Industry minister Kim Carr announced the support package yesterday aimed to increase sales of locally made cars, reaffirming the government’s belief that the automotive industry is “vital” to Australia’s economic future.
