Towards Zero

Towards Zero is the State Government’s road safety strategy for 2008-2020.

Incorporating the Safe System approach, Towards Zero aims to improve road safety through four cornerstones: Safe Road Use; Safe Roads and Roadsides; Safe Speeds; and Safe Vehicles. Our target, by 2020, is 11,000 fewer people killed or seriously injured on our roads – a reduction of approximately 40% on 2005-2007.
