South Australians are being asked to have their say about road safety measures.
The state government has launched a Community Attitudes Survey that seeks the community’s views about reducing deaths and injuries on our roads. The survey focuses on some key areas such as speeding, alcohol and drugs, mobile phone use and driver training and licensing.
An Issues Paper has also been released which provides background about road safety in South Australia and outlines various road safety measures that have been proven to reduce road trauma.
The survey is the next phase of consultation for South Australia’s Road Safety Strategy that aims to reduce the road toll to less than 80 fatalities by 2020.
The Motor Accident Commission will also use the survey results to help with the development of road safety educational programs.
Both the Issues Paper and Community Attitudes Survey are available online at www.yoursay.sa.gov.au/roadsafety. The survey will be open until 5pm, Friday, 29 May.
A new safety campaign has launched to send a powerful reminder to drivers to slow down and play their part in keeping our road crews safe.
Three teams have been awarded the D3 Digital Challenge Launch Pad Award – a $15,000 grant to turn their idea into a prototype to encourage kids to travel actively and safely to and from school.
We have launched our new online Road Works Schedule to provide the community with a forward view of upcoming Departmental road works and traffic restrictions on the arterial road network across the State.
Sections of seven roads in the Riverland, Murray Mallee and Murray Bridge will be resealed improving safety and extending the life of each road.
