What SARAH Inc believes:
i) Each person's life is precious and can therefore never be ethically traded off against traffic mobility. ii) No person should be placed in harm's way simply because of poor policy, poor planning, poor maintenance or poor procedures; iii) Each of us must drive to actively protect other road users, and especially those road users involved in, or assisting at, a crash, breakdown or other incident!
