Guide to Road Safety

The Austroads Guide to Road Safety examines road crash costs and road agencies’ duty of care to provide safe travel.

The Safe System approach as the guiding principle for road safety management is explained, along with the merits of an evidence-based approach to selected road safety countermeasures.

Austroads & Road Safety

The total cost of road crashes in 2011 is estimated at AUD$20.64 billion in Australia and NZD$3.54 billion in New Zealand.

On average, four people are killed and 90 are seriously injured every day on Australia's roads.

Almost everyone has, at some stage, been affected by a road crash.

The Austroads Safety Program aims to prevent death and serious injuries using a safe system approach.
