Victoria's Road Safety Strategy 2013-202201 March 2013
The strategy sets a target to reduce fatalities and serious injuries by more than 30 per cent. Successfully realising this target will see Victoria's annual road toll fall to below 200, and will require everyone on our roads to take individual responsibility for improving safety by making safe travel choices.
Under Victoria's existing Safe System philosophy, effectively improving road safety requires a multi faceted approach that targets the safety of the road environment, the vehicles in which people travel, and the behaviour of everyone on the road.
The new strategy and first supporting action plan can be found on Victoria's new road safety website. The new website will help all Victorians play their part in reducing deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
It provides all types of road users - drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists, pedestrians, heavy vehicle drivers - with information, including the latest research and event and campaign updates, and practical advice on how we can all work to help stop the senseless loss of lives on Victoria's roads.
