Draft 2021-2030 National Road Safety Strategy

20 April 2021

The ATA has called for government to address a severe lack of accountability and the need for clear road safety targets in the proposed new road safety strategy. 

In its submission to the draft 2021-2030 National Road Safety Strategy, the ATA welcomes the proposed targets, but recommends that the strategy, or at least its first action plan, should include five year as well as 10 year targets to focus attention on the need to act now.

In addition, the ATA considers that the strategy should include subtargets for each of its major themes and priorities. It is not possible to determine the resourcing required for, say, safer roads without understanding the contribution that safer roads are expected to make toward the overall targets.
