Strandroth, J., Moon, W, Corben, B

Policy Development And Implementation Road Safety Strategy Safe Systems and Transpoart Planning

ARSC conference 2018

Several countries and overseas jurisdictions have formulated ambitious road safety targets by setting a date for achieving Vision Zero. By targeting zero with a date for Victoria, much can be done in the next few years to prepare for the major challenges faced in moving close to zero. The aim of this paper is to map a road trauma elimination agenda to 2050 by outlining step changes and requirements of roads, vehicles and road users. A plausible zero scenario can be developed, but it will bring some major challenges including a clearer safety philosophy than what exists today.
