The state’s 2016 road toll is up 11.7 per cent on this time last year with 153 people having died on the road as of Wednesday.

In comparison, 137 people died in the same period last year.

Horsham police traffic adviser Senior SergeantGuinCleminsonsaid many residents failed to understand the reality behind statistics or news articles.

“It’s difficult,people don’t alwayscomprehend the effect a serious injury or fatal collision has within the wider community until they’re affected themselves,” she said.

“We don’t want the community to feel that impact.

“We want people thinking about the effect accidents have on other people so it doesn’t impact anyone else.”

The Transport Accident Commission reports in the past yearthere have been12 fatalitiesin the Wimmera.

SenSgtCleminson said even a single death on Victorian roads was too high.

“No number is acceptable,” she said.“We’re trying to move towards zero fatalities and zero injuries.”

Sen Sgt Cleminsonsaid the road toll of fatal collisions was shocking, but so toowas the number of people left seriously injured and affected by crashes.

“Accidents resulting in a serious injury are often the hidden statistics,” she said.

“Fatalities get attention and reported.

“Serious injuries can have a life-long effect on a person and their family, but tend to be more hidden.”

ActingAssistant CommissionerMichael Grainger said there should be more community outrage about the road toll.

“Our community is prepared to accept mobility over safety,” he said.

“That’s a real challenge for us.

“What do we do when we’re predicting 299 people killed on our roads this year, potentially?

“Comparatively202people werekilled inthe Bali bombings.

“And the outrage that gripped our community after that, understandably, was palpable.”

SenSgtCleminson said people were more aware of the road toll than they were a decade ago, but the message doesn’t seem to get through to everyone.

She said sometimespeople forgot the effect and lives behind the toll’s figure.

“With social media more people are aware –the effects areposted daily,” she said.

“What occasionally we see is that people can become complacent and get use to seeing the statistics.”

SenSgtCleminsonsaid police were dedicated to minimising the road toll.

She said most of the time the community understands that aim is behind police actions.“The division is always focused on reducing the severity of collisions,” she said.

“We’re really focused on stopping people driving while impaired, and distracted and fatigued driving, whichall can befactorsin serious injury and fatal collisions.

“A lot of peoplewhen they’ve been pulled over and an officer hasexplained the dangers of their behaviour, the majority accept and acknowledge they shouldn’t have been doing it.

“It’s a small minority who we have difficulty getting through to, and who we still hope we can.”
