McNamara, Frank Leonard

Magistrate and coroner, who, during his short tenure as Sydney Sydney City Coroner in the mid 1950s, was consistently critical of the growing road and rail death toll, urging for safer roads and railways. He campaigned to charge drunk or irresponsible drivers who caused injuries or deaths, and promoted the installation of automatic doors on electric trains.
