23 Nov Decade of Action for Road Safety
The United Nations proclaimed 2011 – 2020 to be the “Decade of Action for Road Safety” to try and address the global epidemic of deaths and serious injuries on the world’s roads. In line with this, the recently released Queensland Road Safety Strategy 2015 – 2021 marks the first time a Queensland government has committed to a vision of ZERO road deaths and serious injuries. ‘Stay on Track Outback’ is perfectly designed to help address this (primarily within the driving tourist market). With 93% of outback tourists driving or fly/driving to the region (Source: Outback Queensland Tourism Association), it is hoped the project will assist in decreasing crashes and increasing awareness surrounding the unique hazards of outback driving.
