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.
