Now, an annual mortality rate of 4.4% per 100,000 people is recorded. This is a 2.4% increase compared to March of last year.

The good news is that the average death toll has fallen from 104 to 94.

There is no reason to be complacent about the roads, as speed remains an issue and the main cause of fatal accidents in Australia.

The posted speed limit is at its highest level in two years, with 140 drivers traveling at 110 kilometers or more per hour when they crashed.

In 2021, the number of motor vehicle driver deaths was 559. This number is six more than the previous year.

The death toll was 229 motorcyclists, 179 passengers, and 126 pedestrians.

The number of cyclists killed was 35.

The 40 to 64 age group recorded the highest number of road accident deaths.

There were 367 road accident deaths in the 40-64 age group.

The type of accidents in which this age group is most commonly involved iscrashes due to speeding, fatigue, and drunkenness.

The second-highest category of deaths by age is from 17 to 25, with a total of 223 deaths in 2022.

This number follows the age group from 26 to 39 (219 deaths), 75 and over (146 deaths), 65 to 74 (114 deaths), and 0 to 16 (61 deaths).

The age group number did not change from 0 to 16 last year but rose from 45 deaths in 2020 to 61 in 2021.

Car accidents are a major concern for more than 70% of people over the age of 65.

While more than 58% of those aged 35-44 also worry about car accidents, only 2.1% fear a train accident.

In the 18-24 age group, 58.7% expressed concern about the car accident scenario.

Men now make up just over two-thirds of serious infections.

In March of last year, a total of 7,082 (67.3%) males were seriously injured as a result of a traffic accident, compared to 3,436 (32.7%) females.

In March 2022, the number of males who died in a crash was 858, a slight increase from 811 the previous year. On the other hand, the number of female victims decreased from 292 to 277. This raises the question of whether gender makes a difference when it comes to road trauma.
