|Authors||Raftery SJ, Woolley JE, Grigo JAL|
|Abstract||This report presents recommendations for the creation of a database to support heavy vehicle road safety performance indicators. It aims to assist state road agencies, police and other stakeholders identify and collect the minimum datasets required to address these safety performance indicators and suggests options for enhancing this minimum dataset with data from additional sources.
Reducing heavy vehicle crashes has been identified in the recently published National Road Transport Strategy (2011-2020) as a key factor to reduce road trauma. The recording of accurate and reliable heavy vehicle crash data is an important step in developing effective policy and safety countermeasures.
