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.

    • Harvest no time for complacency
      Harvest is underway for 2018 in Western Australia, which means our regional roads can become busy with heavy vehicles transporting grain around the state.
    • Warmer weather brings riders out of hibernation
      The spring weather has arrived, particularly in the southern half of WA, prompting a warning for motorcyclists, cyclists, drivers and other road users to share the roads responsibly.
    • Streets ahead in road rules education
      Tailgating is the first road rule to be highlighted in the State Government's new Streets Ahead education campaign that launched in The West Australian newspaper today.
    • How safe is your car?
      A new community education campaign encourages purchasing car buyers to save lives by choosing vehicles with a five star safety rating, whether the vehicle is new or second hand.
