    Where is western Victoria on these maps? Or is it meaning the deaths or serious injuries are not taken as being as serious as Geelong (in the spotlight yet again) Bendigo and Melbourne?

    That’d be “crashes”, not “accidents” I guess. If they were really “accidents” lawyers would not be able to win compensation from the “responsible” party.
    As long as we keep calling “crashes” “accidents”, people will keep believing that they are inevitable and unavoidable.

    My crash on Peninsula link, just past the Frankston Dandenong Road on ramp on the 1st of March 2016 isn’t on there. I was hospitalised for many days, and still recovering from my injuries today.

      Hi Cazz, sorry to hear about your accident. I’m not sure why your accident wouldn’t be appearing, but the data on the map is Victorian Government accident data which is based on Police accident reports and then categorised based on these reports on whether an Ambulance was required for medical treatment or a fatality. ~Steph.

    Rules, rules and more rules! Every nuance of driving on the Australian roads is catered for in some roads law or regulation. It (Road Law) is absurd! Whoever makes and passes these laws is trying to control driving to the nth degree, a control freak. It removes all decision making from the driver “I have RIGHT of way” “the law is on my side” ‘I don’t have to be polite.”
    The psychology is amazing…

  • Dale’s story: How going the extra mile can make a big difference

    In October 2016, Luke Pearcy’s client Dale was involved in a cycling accident with a motorist. It wasn’t the early morning ride he had planned, instead he was knocked off his bike and suffered a fractured coccyx (that’s the tailbone at the base of his spine). Initially this case looked like it would be a […]
