A man has died after his motorbike collided with a council truck in Sydney's west, adding to a shocking three days of fatalities on NSW roads.
Emergency services rushed to the crash about 4am on Monday at Ropes Crossing but the 35-year-old rider was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Blacktown City Council Truck was treated for shock and taken to Nepean Hospital for mandatory testing, police said.
The man's death is the seventh on NSW roads since Saturday morning with police pleading for drivers to slow down.
Among the dead, a teenage couple whose BMW flipped and struck a power pole before bursting into flames in Sydney on Saturday and a three-year-old girl who was hit by a truck in South Grafton on Sunday.
Numerous others ended up in hospital including a 51-year-old man who was critically injured in a single motorcycle crash near Bathurst that killed a 50-year-old woman.
"We're imploring drivers ... to watch your speed, think about what you're doing and be prepared each time you go for a drive," Traffic and Highway Patrol Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said.
