Australian governments at all levels are working together with our communities to change the road transport system to prevent deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
The National Road Safety Strategy represents all governments’ commitment to deliver significant reductions in road trauma, putting Australia on a path to achieve ‘Vision Zero’ or zero deaths and serious injuries on our roads by 2050.

The National Road Safety Strategy 2021-30 sets out Australia’s road safety objectives over the next decade, and includes key priorities for action and targets to reduce the annual number of fatalities by at least 50 per cent and serious injuries by at least 30 per cent by 2030.

Speed management is embedded within all key themes. The Strategy adopts a social model approach to foster a road safety culture across society and make road safety business-as-usual.
