Falling under the sound of twisting metal and busting glass, a quiet toll on the roads over the Anzac period. Hush the tones scrawling tyres with a less than stellar sideline of followers, chalkers and tally enthusiasts.
Packing them body bags aplenty six of one, half a dozen of the other, Queensland out in front of a slower than usual holiday.
Three a piece in the double header tie for second place, Tasmania (where it's seen that a tree will often win against a car fight) and Victoria hold it steady.
Victoria suffering from a case of too many cars and too much noise. Four people walking away with non-fatal injuries which otherwise would have pipped Tasmania at the post.
Following close on broken heels, Western Australia with two corpses.
New South Wales? Close, but not quite. Not even splitting a ute in twain to loosely count as double the vehicular mashup is enough to lick a note on the board. Cemetery shortages breathes another collapsed lung.
ACT, the Northern Territory and South Australia smooth out the bottom of the boat. Each of the states also leaving no bodies on the Anzac roads.
