Have your say on regional roads

RACV is asking Victorians, including those in Moorabool, to provide feedback about how safe they feel on roads in regional Victoria as part of their My Country Road survey.

The survey uses an online interactive map that shows high-speed roads with large concentrations of crashes causing death or serious injury in regional Victoria between 2018 and 2023.

Participants can provide feedback by clicking on one of the highlighted roads and filling out a survey or nominating another road.

RACV Automotive Services general manager Jackie Pedersen, explained how RACV is using the survey results to help make regional roads safer.

“We want to gather as much data as we can to encourage the state government and local councils to make commitments that deliver safer regional roads and help save lives,” she said.

“RACV conducted the first My Country Road survey back in 2021 and 31 regional roads were highlighted as having serious safety issues. Of these, 16 have seen infrastructure upgrades commence or committed to by government.

“In 2023 there were 174 deaths on regional Victorian roads, that is an almost 30 per cent increase on the previous year. Given these tragic numbers, it is more important than ever that Victorians help us to make country roads safer by completing this year’s survey.”

The survey will run for six weeks.
