Motorists make up the largest percentage of fatalities

Motorists make up the majority of road users in Australia and also make up the largest percentage of fatalities, including both drivers and passengers. Being aware of others on the roads, in particular other types of road users, is the best way for motorists to help make the roads a safer place.

Understanding the different restrictions and limitations of cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists and heavy vehicles can help motorists to share the road safely. All road users have a right to use the road so be sure to check out these resources to refresh your driving savviness.
