The National Road Safety Strategy 2021-30 is Australia’s 10-year plan for dramatically reducing road trauma on Australia’s roads.
Developed together by the Commonwealth, state and territories and the Australian Local Government Association, the Strategy sets out our road safety objectives, key priorities for action, and road trauma reduction targets for the decade to 2030. It adopts a Social Model approach to foster a road safety culture across society and make road safety business as usual, laying the groundwork towards the goal of zero deaths and serious injuries by 2050 (Vision Zero).

Developing the Strategy
The National Road Safety Strategy 2021-30 was developed by the Office of Road Safety in collaboration with state and territory road and transport agencies, and the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA), along with the Australia New Zealand Policing Advisory Association (ANZPAA), the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), the National Transport Commission (NTC) and Austroads.
The draft Strategy was open for public comment from 23 February to 23 March 2021.

The National Road Safety Strategy 2021-30 is informed by the 2018 Inquiry into the previous Strategy, and a 2019 Review of National Road Safety Governance.
