TitlePractical Safety Interventions for Regional and Remote Road Safety
AuthorsTan T, Wundersitz LN, Stokes CS, Beer K, Kloeden CN, Zlatkovic P
AbstractApproximately one third of Australians live in regional and remote areas but these areas account for two thirds of fatal crashes. Austroads commissioned a project to provide practitioners with guidance on evidence-based road safety interventions that can prevent fatal and serious injury crashes in regional and remote areas.

A literature review was conducted to identify effective evidence-based road safety countermeasures for regional and remote areas, based on the Safe System pillars. Findings from this review and a series of workshops with stakeholders guided the development of a framework for prioritising these interventions and practitioner advice for implementation. An evaluation framework was also developed for evaluating implemented countermeasure effectiveness.

Importantly, the project delivered factsheets designed for practitioners based on key road safety interventions/issues in regional and remote areas. Each factsheet contained a summary of the intervention, target behaviour and/or road user, application tips, implementation considerations, and intervention effectiveness.
