Submission Date: 2009 Journal
Australia’s first National Road Safety Strategy was established by federal, state and territory Transport Ministers in 1992. Among its objectives was a reduction in the annual road fatality rate from 12 to 10 deaths per 100,000 people by the year 2001. This proved to be an unduly modest ambition, as the target was actually reached in 1997.
