Be careful on NSW roads these school holidays

Dubbo regional holiday makers are urged to take extra care on New South Wales roads these school holidays to avoid the tragic tradition of the holiday road toll.

The Economic Connections Cost of Road Trauma in Australia report – released earlier this month – found a 4 per cent rise in the number of crashes across the country between 2006 and 2015 with hospitalised injuries up 22 per cent (from 31,214 to 37,964).
