Road Safety

What is Road 2 Zero?

The Road 2 Zero Road Safety Strategy builds on Council’s previous strategy and links with the Victorian Government's awareness campaign 'arrive alive 2008-2017'. It outlines ways that we can work together to change attitudes and behaviours to improve road safety and active transport in our community.

Council’s aim is to have a greater than 30% reduction of serious and fatal road crashes, and to reduce the severity of serious injury crashes by 2018.
As a community we can reduce serious injuries from road crashes and spare many families the grief of suffering the loss or serious injury of a loved one on our roads.

Council's current four year Action Plan is aligned with the overall objectives of "Road 2 Zero‟. This Action Plan will be reviewed annually.

Reducing road trauma 

In order to achieve this, there is a need to change certain attitudes and behaviours, and to deliver improved road safety and active transport options. A strong partnership between the community, road safety partners and Council will reinforce and help implement these goals.
