Victoria Police Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan

Trauma associated with use of our road system is significant and unacceptable.

In 2012, 282 people lost their lives on Victorian roads, with serious injuries affecting more than 5,500 people. The economic cost of road trauma per year is estimated to be in the vicinity of three billion dollars. The human cost of road trauma is profound and lifelong.

The Victoria Police Road Safety Strategy 2013-2018 provides the policing framework for reducing road trauma and making our roads safer.


The Victoria Police Road Safety Action Plan 2013-18 provides more detail on the key road user behaviours and road user groups contributing to Victorian road trauma and Victoria Police's approach to tackling these areas.



 The Victoria Police Safer Country Roads Plan 2014-2018 complements the Victoria Police Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan.  It identifies unique rural factors that require unique rural actions.


Road Safety Victoria Website

Visit the Road Safety Victoria website which provides all types of road users - drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists, pedestrians, heavy vehicle drivers - with information, including the latest research, events and campaign updates, as well as provides practical advice on how we can all work to help stop the senseless loss of lives on Victoria's roads.

Victorian Government Strategy and Action Plan

Victoria's Road Safety Strategy 2013-2022 aims to reduce deaths and serious injuries on our roads by 30 per cent over ten years. Achieving this target will see Victoria's annual road toll drop to below 200.

Victoria's Road Safety Action Plan 2013-2016 details the specific road safety initiatives that will be undertaken over the first four years of the road safety strategy.
