Regardless of our Council job, as soon as we drive a City of Sydney vehicle we are seen as professional drivers.

We must all drive safely and with courtesy at all times.

This paper helps provide City of Sydney employees with a basic direction on how they can actively work towards not having a crash.


The outcome of a recent fatal crash in the City showed that the courts expect people driving for work to demonstrate a high standard of driving. All staff are responsible for their own driving ability.It is a responsibility for all business unit managers, section managers, coordinators, supervisors and team leaders to implement and improve strategies to reduce crashes involving the City’s fleet vehicles. Accountability for a crash questions what could have been doneto prevent it.
