Police warn speeding increases the risk of being involved in a crash.

They are frustrated that many people make the conscious decision to drive at speeds that are illegal and can result in serious collisions or worse.

National Road Safety Week is now underway, highlighting the impacts of road trauma and the importance of driving safely so others can survive.

Three people have died in collisions across the Geelong region so far this year, including a 12yo girl in January at Stonehaven.

Assistant Commissioner Glenn Weir said road trauma did not discriminate.

“From the lives lost to their family members, partners, friends, work colleagues and emergency services who attend the scene – thousands of lives are impacted,” he said.

“National Road Safety Week is a timely reminder not only of the devastating impacts of road trauma but also that road safety remains everyone’s responsibility.

“We ask all road users to prioritise safety and take extra care, particularly as we head into the winter months with reduced visibility and inclement weather.”
