THE state’s peak mo­tor­ing body has re­vealed 28 pedes­tri­ans have died since the be­gin­ning of 2016, 11 more than the same time pe­riod last year. RACQ spokesper­son Lau­ren Ritchie said to de­crease the road toll all road users needed to take care on while driv­ing. “It’s re­ally shock­ing to see the num­ber of pedes­tri­ans and mo­tor­cy­cles that fea­ture in our road toll here,” Ms Ritchie said. “Un­for­tu­nately we see time and time again mo­tor­cy­clists, pedes­tri­ans, cy­clists and even cars over­rep­re­sented in the road toll.”
