- Our roads are unique. Our roads are windy, hilly and often single lane
- These roads can be challenging and demanding to drive, and the consequences of small errors can be fatal
- Not all risks are visible, and often our roads aren't easy to read
Our roads are unique. They are varied, scenic and often enjoyable to drive, but they can also be dangerous and unforgiving. Our roads have many hidden hazards.
Drivers need to choose the right speed for the roads because not all risks are visible, and often our roads aren't easy to read. When the right cues are in place, drivers have an easier time choosing a safe speed.
Communities have a role to play in assessing the risks of their roads, and putting in place accurate and reliable safety measures that reflect the road conditions and help drivers read the road. This will help create a transport system that is safe for all road users.
