Why are the objects in your side mirror closer than they appear?
What should you do about roadwork speed signs that are left in place when the work’s finished?
These are just a few of the questions our road safety experts have answered lately.

Risky Rides 2020
Our first Risky Rides survey invited RAA members to nominate South Australia's riskiest on-road and off-road cycling infrastructure.
As part of RAA’s Regional Road Assessment program, our road safety team drives thousands of kilometres across the state each year, assessing the quality of our roads and highways. Guided by feedback from regional members, our experts look at everything from overtaking lanes and crumbling edges, to roadside hazards and freight routes. We use this information to lobby governments to make improvements.
Road safety audits are a formal assessment of the safety of a road or location, and RAA’s qualified road safety auditors conduct periodic audits based on the concerns of members.
RAA also submit an annual nomination for funding into the state black spot program, and periodically assess sinking service pit covers on major arterial roads.
Our Risky Roads survey calls for all road users – motorists, cyclists and pedestrians – to identify roads or intersections they found confusing, difficult to negotiate, or made them feel unsafe.
Voting for our 2021 Risky Roads survey has now closed. Our Safety and Infrastructure team are now looking over your responses, and the results results will be announced in early 2022. You can see a summary of our 2019 Risky Roads results on our Risky Roads page.
