Mark dan­ger ar­eas on map

Joondalup Times - - OPINION -

ROAD users con­cerned about the safety of In­dian Ocean Drive can now pin­point the spots they con­sider the most dan­ger­ous us­ing an in­ter­ac­tive map.

The lat­est se­ri­ous crash on the road was last Tues­day when a 70year-old man lost con­trol of a ve­hi­cle and struck a tree.

The car was de­stroyed, but the man es­caped se­vere in­jury.

Six peo­ple have died this year on the tourist stretch, which Road Safety Min­is­ter Michelle Roberts has de­scribed as “one of WA’s most dan­ger­ous roads”.

Last Thurs­day, Ms Roberts launched the ini­tia­tive, which al­lows mo­torists to up­load a photo and de­scrip­tion of a dan­ger­ous area, before se­lect­ing the lo­ca­tion on the map.

“The In­dian Ocean Drive High­way Safety Re­view com­mit­tee will use the in­for­ma­tion as part of its re­port to Ms Roberts next month.
