Road safety


In 2021, the NSW Government set a state priority target to reduce road fatalities by 30 per cent by 2021 (from 2008 to 2010 levels) and launched a new road safety plan ‘Toward Zero’. The plan features targeted initiatives intended to meet road safety goals, by addressing key trends, trauma risks and the types of crashes occurring on NSW roads. This audit may examine progress to date and review the effectiveness of the design and implementation of select initiatives.
