TitleReview of the National Road Safety Strategy
AuthorsLydon M, Woolley JE, Small M, Harrison J, Bailey TJ, Searson DJ
Year2015
TypeReport
AbstractThis report details the results of a review of the 2011 Australian National Road Safety Strategy (NRSS) designed to identify new countermeasures or changes in trauma patterns that would support changes to priorities in the next Action Plan. The project was commissioned as part of the first review of the NRSS. The project included a targeted literature review including strategies from successful countries, consultation with a wide range of stakeholders, a review of the level of implementation of the NRSS and data analysis including fatal crash data, hospital separations data, speed surveys, vehicle kilometres travelled and properties of the vehicle fleet. Increased emphasis was recommended for 13 priority areas including developing a Safe System for vulnerable road users, improving safety for older road users and better understanding serious injuries. It was also recommended that more support be provided for the introduction of new technology for vehicles and infrastructure.
