Select Inquiry into Road Safety in Tasmania
On 29 June 2021, I moved a motion in the Legislative Council to establish a Select Inquiry into Road Safety in Tasmania. This motion passed unanimously and a four-member Committee has now been established. On 13 July 2021, I was appointed as Chair of this Committee.
Despite the National Road Safety Strategy 2011-2020 target of a 30% reduction of fatalities and serious crashes in all jurisdictions, the rates of such incidents in Tasmania has risen.
We need to do something about this.
Submissions to this inquiry have now closed. Thank you for your interest.
The committee will now consider the submissions that have been made, determine where and when hearings will be held and set a date for the publication of the final reports and recommendations.
Road Safety Statistics
On average, 300 people are killed or seriously injured on Tasmanian roads each year.
