Conventional vs. Safe Systems or Vision Zero approaches to road safety

In the table above, kindly provided by Austroads for our workshop, we can see part of the problem that occurred in the road safety responses to four deaths on the Kyogle Road near Uki.

This is a major issue that we will seek to address in our Bless This Road workshop on September 30th.

We want to make sure that local authorities (especially in rural areas) have the means and capacity to move beyond conventional thinking and accept a more systemic and up-to-date way of viewing road safety in their municipality.  That approach is embodied in the Safe System (or Vision Zero) model of road safety (see below).

Towards Zero
