Achieving a major reduction in road trauma requires a unified approach between governments, industries, communities and road users. Together we have achieved the greatest improvement in fatalities of any State or Territory since 2003.
As we head towards our 2020 targets to reduce serious casualties during the decade by at least 30 per cent - to less than 80 fatalities and less than 800 serious injuries per year - direction, engagement and participation are critical.
Other agencies also play a significant role including the departments for Health, Education and Children's Services and the South Australian Emergency Services.
The National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) is a collaborative network for businesses, governments and researchers to share information and good practice regarding road safety.
