Local Governments (LGs) are in a unique position to provide road safety authorities with insight into local factors that contribute to road trauma in their communities. Victorian LGs are responsible for a significant portion of Victoria’s road network. Approximately 30 per cent1 of all fatalities in Victoria occur on LG roads. The Transport Accident Commission (TAC), interested in exploring this knowledge as well as the resourcing capacities of each LG, stopped and listened to all 79 municipalities in Victoria. They told us how we could assist in their journey towards zero.
