NRMA proposes driver education for speeding drivers

The NRMA has called for the New South Wales Government to introduce alternatives such as driver training courses for low level speeding offences. With a year-to-date road toll of 208 for 2016, NSW has already seen a 25 per cent spike in road deaths compared to the same period last year. Kyle Loades, president of the NRMA, said that speed-related offences are a significant factor in fatal crashes, and that speed offenders need to be better educated about the dangers of their risky actions.
