Can Australia go one day without a death on our roads?

There is a greater emphasis on reducing road deaths with tomorrow officially labelled nationwide Fatality Free Friday.

Fatality Free Friday falls on May 31, with the aim to not have a single death on our roads for the whole day.

Statistically, this could save five lives across the country.

Australian Road Safety Foundation CEO Russell White tells Chris Smith the day is yet to be a nationwide success.

“We’ve had a number of states that have had fatality free Fridays on the day but we’re hoping tomorrow we can have an actual Fatality Free Friday.

“Early in the year, we seem to get a better result. So it proves that it can be done.”
