The SA Chapter of the ACRS is proud to offer this free webinar recording with the following program:
In this webinar Sarah Clarke, Director Road Safety, Policy and Research at the Department for Infrastructure and Transport outlines the overall process for the development of South Australia’s Road Safety Strategy to 2031. The webinar covers the complexity of the challenge and addresses the values based approach being taken to understanding community values. Evidence led foundations are also inputting into strategy development, particularly the safe systems pillars, application of research, and Centre for Automotive Safety Research modelling.
Using a four phase approach, the second phase is nearing completion being stakeholder and community input. Submissions have been received along with over 1,300 on-line survey responses from the community. The evidence led focus areas for the strategy are regional South Australia, fatigue, and older road users. Sarah highlighted aligning with the National Road Safety Strategy 2021-2030 which is also currently being developed.
The release of the draft strategy for comment is expected to be released in the first half of 2021, followed by publication of the final strategy and implementation.
