National Road Safety Strategy
Around 1,200 people are killed each year on Australia’s roads and about 40,000 are seriously injured. Even one death on our roads is one too many.
Australia is working towards the goal of zero deaths and serious injuries on our roads by 2050 (Vision Zero).
National Road Safety Strategy 2021-30
Australia has a 10-year strategy to improve safety on our roads.
Through the National Road Safety Strategy 2021-30 we aim to deliver significant reductions in road trauma together with our communities that will put us on a path to Vision Zero.
The National Road Safety Action Plan 2023-25 (Action Plan) is the first Action Plan for the Strategy. The Action Plan outlines the actions the Australian, state and territory governments will take to implement the Strategy to 2025.

National Road Safety Action Grants Program
Guidelines and supporting documents for the National Road Safety Action Grants Program are now available.
The National Road Safety Strategy represents all governments’ commitment to deliver significant reductions in road trauma by 2030 and beyond.
National road safety action plans provide a detailed roadmap for Australian governments to implement 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).
