This year is on track to be one of our deadliest on record.

Latest figures show 320 people died on our roads last year, down more than 11 percent on the road toll in 2018.

But the AA says this year's road toll is on track to reach 350 to 360.

Road Safety Spokesperson Dylan Thomsen told Kate Hawkesby usually when fuel prices jump, road deaths decrease due to less people driving, but that isn't happening.
