The NSW Centre for Road Safety’s job is to change cultural values on road safety in NSW. Its first mission – to convince drivers that speeding is socially unacceptable.
The immediate task for the NSW Centre for Road Safety is to focus Roads and Maritime Services (formerly Roads and Traffic Authority) on developing new solutions to the biggest killer on our roads – speeding – which is a factor in 40 per cent of our road deaths.
The centre is also looking at emerging road safety technology like electronic stability control and will work closely with interstate and national bodies to drive national improvements in areas like child restraints, Australian Design Rule changes and safety classifications for vehicles.Visit Link

Achieving a major reduction in road trauma requires a unified approach between governments, industries, communities and road users. Together we have achieved the greatest improvement in fatalities of any State or Territory since 2003.
As we head towards our 2020 targets to reduce serious casualties during the decade by at least 30% – to less than 80 fatalities and less than 800 serious injuries per year, direction, engagement and participation is critical.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, Police, the Motor Accident Commission, Local Government, the transport, health and education sectors, the Centre for Automotive Safety Research, RAA and community road safety groups all have an important role to play.Visit Link
