National Road Safety Strategy
The National Road Safety Strategy 2011–2020 represents the commitment of federal, state and territory governments to an agreed set of national goals, objectives and action priorities; setting out a path for action to reduce fatal and serious injury crashes on Australian roads.
A new Strategy: National Road Safety Strategy 2021-2030
A new National Road Safety Strategy for the decade 2021-2030 is currently being developed. This new Strategy will recognise that road safety is not solely a transport problem.
The new Strategy is expected to be finalised and approved in early 2021.
Office of Road Safety
The Australian Government has established the Office of Road Safety to provide national leadership and coordination to improve road safety outcomes.
The Office is leading the development of the new National Road Safety Strategy.
For more information, visit the Office of Road Safety website.
A range of research and development work and other national projects are linked to the implementation of the National Road Safety Strategy.
The primary measure of success will be the reduction in the numbers of deaths and serious injuries from road crashes. Progress is also assessed using a series of safety performance indicators (SPIs).
The National Road Safety Strategy 2011–2020 is Australia's 10 year plan to reduce the annual numbers of deaths and serious injuries from road crashes by at least 30 per cent.
The National Road Safety Strategy is an initiative of the Transport and Infrastructure Council, and is established cooperatively by the Commonwealth and state and territory governments.
The National Road Safety Action Plan supports the implementation of the National Road Safety Strategy 2011–2020.
Australia is collaborating in global efforts to improve road safety through a number of international forums and initiatives, including the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020.
