AbstractRoad crash fatality rates continue to be unacceptably higher in regional/remote areas than major cities. This study investigates the causes of road crashes in regional/remote areas and provides strategic guidance to identify the most effective approaches to eliminate harm on the road network in these areas. Consistent with the Safe System approach, strategic planning across all components of the system is necessary to allocate resources and eliminate harm in regional/remote areas over a realistic long-term time frame. The paper concludes with a discussion of evidence-based countermeasures and new initiatives urgently needed to eliminate harm on regional/remote roads.
