Have your say on the draft South Australia's Road Safety Strategy to 2031

What's being decided?

The draft South Australia's Road Safety Strategy sets out the following ambitious 10-year targets to support our long term vision of zero lives lost on our roads by 2050:

  • At least 50% reduction in lives lost
  • At least 30% reduction in serious injuries (per capita) on South Australian roads by 2031.

The draft Strategy contains principles that underpin road safety decision making and nine strategic priorities that are the focus areas.

We want your feedback on the draft strategy.

Please view the explanatory video below from Road Safety Minister, the Hon Vincent Tarzia MP.

Background

The draft Strategy has been informed by road safety statistics and evidence.

The development of the draft Strategy was guided by extensive consultation with communities, stakeholders and road users across the state from August 2020 – March 2021, including the following:

  • A series of 10 webinars with road safety stakeholders
  • State-wide survey on yourSAy which generated over 1,340 responses and 36 written submissions
  • Research to better understand road user behaviour, including motivators and barriers in relation to fatigue and older road users, plus a focus session with stakeholders to explore issues and possible solutions
  • A series of workshops on road user behaviour, infrastructure and with local government
  • 3 regional workshops in Yorketown, Tintinara and Loxton which are located in areas associated with high levels of road trauma.

You can read more about this in the Consultation Feedback Summary.
