It Won't Happen To Me

Presented by Australia's most acclaimed journalist Ray Martin, IT WON’T HAPPEN TO ME will expose the myths behind one of the biggest killers in regional Australia – the way we drive on our roads.

The compelling one hour PRIME7 LOCAL NEWS special investigates the shocking reality of road fatalities on our country's roads and who is to blame for the growing road toll.

Featuring exclusive first-hand accounts, Ray Martin confronts the sobering consequences of road trauma and reveals why we continue to ignore the dangers and how drivers can play their part in reducing risk to themselves and the community.
