Community support is essential to achieve National and State-based road safety targets. An online survey was used to explore attitudes towards road safety and enforcement strategies used in South Australia (SA). The study identified that a significant proportion of the community are more concerned now regarding the road toll than they were in the past. Driver distraction and impatience are considered the leading contributors towards the state road toll, and community members believe that visible policing and driver training are amongst the most effective strategies for reducing the number of road crashes.
