Work is underway to develop a new road safety strategy to guide decisions and investment, with a focus on the safe movement of people throughout the State.
Road safety is a shared responsibility and input from communities and stakeholders across South Australia is critical for developing effective measures to reduce road trauma. The development of the Strategy will be guided by extensive consultation with stakeholders and the community.
To help form this strategy, we are using modelling by the Centre for Automotive Safety and Research in regards to what works to reduces lives lost and serious injuries. We are also investigating issues that the statistics highlight as problems tell us are significant issues in South Australia, drawing on local, interstate and national research.
