Science and higher fuel prices are the main reason for April’s lower road toll, says the car review website dogandlemon.com
Provisional figures show 12 road deaths in April - the lowest for any month since 1965, when monthly records began.
Editor Clive Matthew-Wilson, whose road safety research was awarded by the Australian Police Journal, says:
“Higher fuel prices mean that the highest risk group – young, working-class males – make far less trips. The less trips you make, the less accidents you have.”
