New Road Safety Strategy
The McGowan Government has set an ambitious target to reduce road fatalities and severe injuries on Western Australian roads.
The new target is included in Driving Change – Road Safety Strategy for Western Australia 2020 – 2030, released by Minister for Police and Road Safety, Hon. Michelle Roberts MLA on November 15, 2020.
Driving Change is the framework to guide WA’s road safety journey over the next decade, to reduce the number of people fatally, severely or seriously injured by 50 to 70% by 2030, and to zero by 2050.
The Road Safety Commission will develop the first Road Safety Action Plan 2021 – 2022 to successfully deliver the priorities and focus areas outlined in the strategy.
This new strategy is a ‘call to action’ for all West Australians to collaborate and drive change in their communities.
