VICTORIA Police has a new tool to promote
safety on Victoria s roads.
The new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe,
codenamed Guardian, unveiled today will be
used as both an operational highway patrol car
and to promote in-car safety features at exhibits
across the state over the next 12 months.
Assistant Commissioner Doug Fryer said it
was important for people to consider buying
the safest car they could afford when the time
came to purchase a new vehicle.
"Death and serious injuries on Victorian
roads could be reduced by a third overnight if
everyone was driving the safest cars they can
afford," he said.
"We re not saying that everyone needs to
rush out and buy the latest and greatest but
we need people to prioritise safety over leather
seats and shiny wheels.
"Your car should be a guardian for your safety
and the safety of your family much like police
are a guardian for everyone in the community."
He said the long term vision of zero deaths
and serious injuries on Victoria s roads would
only be achieved through a combination of
safer roads, safer people, safer speeds, and
safer vehicles. "Reducing the number of lives
needlessly lost on our roads requires a whole of
community effort," AC Fryer said.
"Police have a responsibility to do more than
just catch unsafe drivers and we can do this
by promoting safer vehicles and encouraging
business to play its part.
"We know about half of all used cars
in Victoria are former fleet vehicles so if
businesses ensure they re leasing and
purchasing the safest vehicles the benefits will
flow on to their fellow Victorians.
"Safety should never be an optional extra and
the car industry has a corporate responsibility to
make safety technology standard in all new cars."
Anyone buying a car is encouraged to visit
the How Safe Is Your Car and How Safe Is Your
First Car websites to check the safety features
of any potential purchase.
The Guardian will be on display at the
Industry and Innovation Precinct during the
2016 Formula One Rolex Australian Grand Prix.
