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

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”.

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

“Over the past few weeks, I have been in contact with many people who believe they have something to offer the review that we are conducting into Indian Ocean Drive,” she said.

“This innovative technology provides an opportunity for local people and road users to have their voices heard in the current road safety audit.

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