Saving Lives Together

Road Trauma Trust Account

The Road Trauma Trust Account (RTTA) receives 100 per cent of the revenue resulting from photographic speed and red-light camera fines.  The funds are managed by the Road Safety Commission and provided to implement priority road safety projects that address road safety initiatives consistent with the Government’s Towards Zero Road Safety Strategy 2008-2020 (Towards Zero) . Towards Zero aims for a reduction in road deaths and serious injuries of 40 per cent by 2020.

In accordance with the Road Safety Council Act 2002 the Road Safety Council (Council) is responsible for making recommendations to the Minister for Road Safety. The Commission supports the Council and administers the Account.

RTTA funding is allocated each financial year with amounts allocated in the forward estimates for ongoing years to continue road safety projects and programs. The RTTA is subject to the whole of State Government budget process and there are limited funds available.

Submissions for RTTA funding are reviewed by the Commission and then provided to the Council for their consideration to provide recommendations to the Minister for Road Safety.

The RTTA funds several road safety projects and programs which are selected based on their ability to deliver outcomes for the Towards Zero State Strategy. These projects are coordinated by the Commission, with most being delivered by other State Government agencies as well as other entities.

This includes projects such as the Regional Run-Off Roads Crashes Program, Community Education Campaigns, the School Drug Education and Road Aware Program (SDERA) and Increase Breath and Drug Testing.
