Did you know that despite coronavirus effectively shutting down the state for many weeks Tasmania's road toll increased?
We were one of only two states to record an increase in the months leading up to July.
At the same time, The Examiner staff continued to attend the Magistrates Court where drink driving cases would repeatedly take up most of the day.
That is not something to be proud of, and it's also something we cannot continue to ignore.
On Thursday, The Examiner will launch a road safety campaign. But it will not be like the campaigns you have seen before.
Usually we call for change in terms of driver behaviour. This campaign will explore what changes we should start, what can we stop and what needs adapting when it comes to road safety more broadly.
To do this, we need your help.
What needs change so that we can save lives? Do we need new legislation, to introduce double demerit points, or harsher penalties, should we improve infrastructure, or create greater access to public transport? What will it take to have people stop risking their lives and others?
If there was an easy answer we wouldn't be having this conversation.
Stop, think, drive.
