The Road Safety Alliances and Forums have been developed to focus the efforts of main industry bodies, local and state government agencies on working collaboratively to improve road safety in their region. There are currently three Industry Road Safety Alliances operating in the state regions: South West, MidWest and Pilbara.
All have the primary goal of improving road safety and reducing road trauma within their own regions.
These alliances meet quarterly (as a minimum) and bring together:
- main industry bodies of the region,
- government agencies that have a responsibility for road safety,
- peak advisory bodies and;
- key corporate organisations.
Each Road Safety Alliance has the potential to make strong, positive contributions at a regional level advocating for improvements in the four cornerstones of Roads and Roadsides, Speeds, Road Use and Vehicle Safety.
Each Alliance welcomes guest speakers to promote their services in relation to Road Safety initiatives. The Road Safety Commission’s role within the Alliances is primarily consultative.
Driving Change specifically outlines the initiatives that industries and the corporate world could undertake to contribute to each cornerstone of the road safety strategy for the state.
