Senate says response to black spots must be better tailored

Tabled in parliament on Tuesday, the Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport Committee's interim report on road safety noted the $50 billion in national roads funding over four years announced in the Federal Budget, but called for "tailored solutions in regional and remote areas that focus on road safety rather than driver convenience".
