The Commissioner will be discussing Driving Change – WA’s approach to achieving the 50- 70% road trauma reduction target by 2030. Driving Change sets out WA’s Road Safety Strategy over the next 10 years. It outlines a shared vision, priorities and effective implementation areas for government, the private and not-for-profit sectors and the community.
In 2008, the Western Australian Government set a bold aspiration to achieve a 40% reduction in serious road trauma by 2020. For 2030 a target reduction of between 50 and 70% has been set on a journey to “zero” by 2050.
Where have we made progress? Where are the challenges and opportunities going forward? How has research contributed and what do we need in the future?
