A ROAD safety education program has been rolled out throughout the region.

Member for Greg Aplin said the Saving Lives on Country Roads highlighted the crisis unfolding almost daily on the state’s regional road network, a crisis which is devastating families and local communities.

“We need to face up to the fact that far too many country people are dying on our roads,” Mr Aplin said.

“Last year we lost 252 people in the country ...two thirds of the road toll.”
