Insight: Death on the Roads

The number of deaths on New Zealand's roads has been on the rise since 2013. This year's toll is now 329 - one higher than the total number of deaths for the whole of last year. For every road death, 10 others suffer serious injury, and sometimes life-long consequences. A similar trend is plaguing other countries. But does anyone have the answer?
