Victoria Police Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan

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

In 2018, 213 people lost their lives on Victorian roads.

The human cost of road trauma is profound and lifelong.

The Victoria Police Road Safety Strategy 2013-18 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 2014-18 complements the Victoria Police Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan.

It identifies unique rural factors that require unique rural actions.
