Data released by Victoria Police and the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) shows that Victoria recorded the highest number of road deaths in three years during February 2016. During the month, a total of 33 people were killed on Victorian roads, broken down into 13 motorcyclists, 12 drivers, five pedestrians, one passenger and two cyclists. Teenagers and motorcyclists were found to be over-represented within these figures, with the further recording of motorcyclist deaths being at their highest in close to 30 years. Although the elevated figures can be attributed to a number of external factors and monthly fluctuation, statistics such as these are a reminder to remain vigilant on the roads.
