According to the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development, the number of road fatalities per 100,000 people was 5.37 in 2016. The annual amount of injuries requiring hospitalisation was 152.6 per 100,000 people. The hospitalised injury rate was 27 times the population-based rate for fatalities. This has increased to nearly double since 2002 (16 times the fatality rate.)
Despite many Federal and State government initiatives designed to decrease the instances of road traffic accidents, these accidents, however unfortunate, can occur. According to OnePath Life Research “optimistic Australians” survey (December 2008), 89% of respondents didn’t think they’d ever experience a life-changing accident that would prevent them working in the next 20 years.
