Road safety month

The Australian Road Safety Foundation has launched Rural Road Safety Month.

At the time of launch, Western Region's road toll stood at 44 deaths to date this year. Eight of which have occurred in the Chifley Police District.

"We do a lot of things to be proud of in the bush, but our road safety record is not one of them," Inspector Adam Beard said.

"In my 30 years of policing within the Western Region, I've attended my share of fatal crashes. What I've been exposed to at the scene of fatal crashes has always been overshadowed by what follows; informing the family their loved one won't be coming home.

"If one life is saved through this year's campaign, it will have been a huge success."
