Towards Zero - Building a safe road system for Victoria

Truong, J, Cockfield, S

Road Safety Programs

ARSC conference 2015

During an average week in Victoria, five people are killed and a further 100 people are hospitalised following road crashes. There are far too many deaths and injuries and the ripple effect of road trauma is enormous. The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) no longer accepts deaths and serious injuries as being inevitable consequences of having a road network. The TAC's vision is for a future where no one will be killed or seriously injured and where every journey is a safe journey. _x000D_

In order to realise the vision, the TAC must bring to life and implement initiatives which are guided by the principles which underpin the Towards Zero approach. This paper will detail the TAC's strategy of initiatives being used to help Victoria move Towards Zero._x000D_
