Keywords: Road Safety Strategy, Policy Development and Implementation
Submission Date: 2019
Setting evidence-based road safety targets relies on the development of safety performance indicators linked to trauma outcomes. The use of safety performance indicators is an internationally recognised approach to improving road safety management, and are now being developed in NSW. Safety performance indicators will assist in monitoring progress of road safety actions in the Road Safety Plan 2021 and focusing on the key drivers of road trauma so that priorities can be refocused if necessary. They can also assist strategic planning for future activities that will drive further trauma reductions beyond 2021.
