The Road safety commission states that it ‘holds the responsibility of reducing road trauma on WA’s roads through harnessing the knowledge, expertise and interest in our community.
Through a Road Safety Advisory framework, the Commission incorporates a diverse range of interests from the private sector, government agencies and the community, which enable input into policy and initiatives to be researched, developed or implemented.
By collaborating with these groups and key stakeholders, the Road Safety Commission is provided with strategic, operational and tactical advice which ensure innovation, agility and independence in the programs and campaigns developed.
Its aim is to support the state government’s road safety strategy, Towards Zero 2008-2020, and achieve a 40% reduction in people who are killed or seriously injured in crashes on metropolitan and regional roads. This is achieved through the continuation of delivery and implementation of the strategic directions outlined for a safe system and continues to improve road safety through the four cornerstones of: Safe Road Use, Safe Roads and Roadsides, Safe Speeds, and Safe Vehicles.
The Commission leads the way with mass media campaigns and is also a lead in the development and introduction of policies and legislation to improve road safety in WA’
