Community Attitudes to Road Safety Survey to include Heavy Vehicles

The latest national survey of Community Attitudes to Road Safety commenced recently and this is the first time in its 24 year history that it will address questions about sharing the road with heavy vehicles.

It will address for the first time attitudes towards drug impaired driving.

The survey will hopefully help to improve road safety policies, something the government says it is committed to. It cannot however improve road safety alone, it requires the cooperation of all road users, Federal infrastructure and transport minister Darren Chester said.
