This is a guest posting from Shaun Lennard, chairman of the Australian Motorcycle Council
Six months in to this year, and it’s looking like “good” news based on the monthly national summary of road deaths. The report for June 2018 was published yesterday. The total motorcycle fatalities year-to-date has returned to where it was a couple of years ago – below 200 – after what might now be considered a spike the previous year or two. It’s no reason for celebrating or complacency – 200 is still way too high in my opinion – but at least things are tracking in the right direction again.
Meanwhile, pedestrian and cycling deaths continue to increase, so you know where the money will be spent.
The June report is available here for your perusal.
