Peter Frazer often drives past the spot where his daughter was killed, and eight years on he still advocates for safer roads.
Sarah was on her way to Charles Sturt University in Wagga when she died in a crash on the Hume Highway.
The 23-year-old's car broke down and she had pulled into the breakdown lane and while the tow-truck driver was hooking up her car, a truck side-swiped the broken-down car killing both Sarah and the tow-truck driver instantly.
Her family started the Safer Australian Roads and Highway organisation in her honour. This week, Mr Frazer visited Wagga in light of National Road Safety Week.
"This was going to be the place that Sarah called home, so we believe that the people of Wagga are a part of our family too now," he said.
"We are focusing on regional and rural road users because people are dying on these roads at a higher rate than those in urban areas."
Mr Frazer said his daughter continues to be an inspiration to him every day.
"I am still in counselling to this day," he said.
"I had to identify my beautiful daughter, who had been left in pieces on the Hume. No parent, no loved one should ever be confronted by that. And, for what reason?"
Mr Frazer added that more needs to be done to make sure that every person can get home safe to their loved ones.
"Can you imagine if we had a response as we did to the pandemic to stop those terrible numbers," he said.
"We believe that the people of Wagga are a part of our family too now and this week highlights the importance of not only staying safe while driving but making sure our roads are safe."
