Young road users, older road users, cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists, Aboriginal road users and heavy vehicles drivers all have a role to play in the safe use of the road network.
Towards Zero Together - South Australia's Road Safety Strategy 2020 supports the priority actions outlined in the Road Safety Action Plan 2011-2012.
Road safety begins and ends with road users. And all road crash statistics involve road users.
Pedestrians, cyclists and riders of motorcycles, horses and skateboards; drivers of cars and heavy vehicles; the young, the elderly, the disabled; novice drivers, new arrivals and international visitors - all road users should know their responsibilities and respect the rights of all who share our roads.
A fair proportion of our road users are considered vulnerable, in that they do not have the protection of a rigid vehicle, they move more slowly and are not as visible as others. Vulnerable road users - pedestrians, cyclists, scooters and skaters, the elderly and the young – also share both the right to be safe on the road and the responsibility of knowing road rules and being courteous to others.
Additional vehicles registered in South Australia have now been identified as having been fitted with a “critical” Takata airbag, and will be refused registration to ensure the safety of all road users.
As part of the Regency Road to Pym Street Project there will be a temporary partial closure of the South Road and Regency Road intersection from 5am Monday, 4 January, to 5am Monday, 11 January, weather permitting.
As part of the Darlington Upgrade Project, night and weekend works will be undertaken in the lowered motorway and on South Road to install the final layer of asphalt and line marking.
Motorists are advised of upcoming partial closures of the Heysen Tunnels to allow for essential safety maintenance works.
