NRSS Implementation Failure

1.8.2019

Australia is failing to meet the road trauma reduction targets set by the Commonwealth, State and Territory governments as a part of the National Road Safety Strategy (NRSS).

Australia is failing to meet the road trauma reduction targets set by the Commonwealth, State and Territory governments as a part of the National Road Safety Strategy (NRSS).

Latest data shows there has been little improvement since the Strategy began. Australians are still being killed or seriously injured on our roads at an alarming rate, and many road safety measures are worse today than they were when the NRSS was established nearly a decade ago.

The most recent report tracking the Australian Government’s implementation of the NRSS – current to the end of 2017 only – confirms that most of the Strategy’s safety performance targets will not be met. Even worse, many still cannot be measured.

“…this has got to be a data driven approach to road safety. At the moment we have a national road safety strategy where a quarter of the targets are not even being measured.”
