Home' Open Road Western NSW : OR0518 Contents THE NSW GOVERNMENT will adopt
a number of NRMA recommendations
to tackle fatigue, distracted driving
and drink driving as part of its Road
Safety Plan 2021.
The government’s $125 million
investment in road safety measures on
country roads includes tactile line-
markings to alert fatigued drivers – a
measure the NRMA called for in its Dead
Tired report. The Road Safety Plan 2021
also includes amending legislation to
allow camera technology to be used to
enforce mobile phone offences, aligning
with the NRMA’s call to crack down on
illegal mobile phone use in its driver
distraction paper, Can’t Talk. Driving.
The decision to expand the NRMA’s
2012 proposed alcohol interlock policy will
help address community concerns around
the dangers of drink driving. The policy
focused on repeat offenders to include all
mid-range drink driving offences.
NRMA Chairman Tim Trumper believes
the plan will help avoid another horrific
road toll like that in 2017. “ It’s positive
that both sides of politics have
recognised that enforcement paired with
community education is the key to
saving lives,” Mr Trumper says.
“The NRMA is pleased to see the NSW
Government embracing technology in
road safety, however there’s additional
potential for technology solutions to
make our vehicles safer, our roads more
forgiving and encourage drivers to
change or regulate their behaviour.”
With nearly half of the NRMA’s
Members living in regional areas, Mr
Trumper says it’s unacceptable that
country motorists are four times more
likely to die in a road crash than drivers in
metro NSW. Safety works such as tactile
line markings to address driver fatigue
are a welcome addition to this package.
“Our Members tell us that feeling
unsafe on NSW roads is a significant
issue for them, and the NRMA will be an
unrelenting advocate for road safety
until we see a significant reduction in the
road toll,” Mr Trumper says.
The NRMA is calling on the NSW
Government to adopt a process of review
and consultation to ensure these and
other measures deliver genuine safety
benefits to the community.
In order to avoid a repeat of the shocking 2017 road toll,
the NSW Government is taking up some of the NRMA’s
recommendations for improving road safety
