Safe System Approach
To achieve the ultimate goal of zero deaths and serious injuries on NSW roads, we’ve adopted a safe system approach.
This approach is underpinned by these principles:
- People are human and sometimes make mistakes – a simple mistake shouldn’t cost anyone their life.
- Roads, roadsides and vehicles need to be designed to minimise crashes or reduce forces if a crash happens.
- Road safety is a shared responsibility – everyone needs to make safe decisions on and around the road to prioritise safety.
Initiatives to ensure safer roads, speeds, people and vehicles need to be implemented together so the road system not only keeps us moving, but safe and protected.
