Centre for Road Safety

Safer future for all road users

The NSW Government has set a target to reduce annual road deaths and serious injuries by at least 30 per cent by 2021.

The Road Safety Plan 2021 sets out priorities to meet the Road Safety Strategy 2012-2021 targets for reducing deaths and serious injuries on NSW roads. The Road Safety Plan 2021 also positions NSW to work towards a longer-term aspirational goal of a zero road toll to support the Future Transport strategy, which is being developed this year to establish a 40-year vision for transport in NSW.

The Aboriginal Road Safety Action Plan supports Aboriginal communities and includes free access to the Safer Drivers Course, the continuation of successful driver licensing access programs and training on the safe installation of child car seats.

The Pedestrian Safety Action Plan has been developed using road safety data and includes a trial of new pedestrian countdown timers at busy Sydney locations.

The Cycling Safety Action Plan will extend the "It's a Two Way Street" campaign and help develop targeted infrastructure safety improvements for bicycle riders.

The NSW Road Safety Strategy outlines safer designs to improve roads, with better crash response times and faster monitoring of serious injury trends.

The NSW Motorcycle Safety Strategy includes campaigns to reduce motorcycle crash risks and improve the safety of the road environment for riders.

The NSW Speed Camera Strategy shows how speed cameras change driver behaviour and have a positive effect on road safety.

The NSW Breakdown Safety Strategy contains tips and information to keep you safe in an emergency. Breakdown lane crashes are more common on high-speed roads and most occur on roads with a speed limit of 80km/h or faster.
