All road users are responsible for safe use of our roads. It is important for everyone to know the rules. It’s another way we can improve road safety and get closer to zero road crash casualties.
Various Tasmanian Government bodies and Road Safety Advisory bodies provide comprehensive road safety and general road information on their web sites and social media platforms.
Here are some useful websites that provide road and road user safety information:
Department of State Growth – Transport
For information on licencing, registration, vehicles, passengers, road safety, roads and traffic, fees, forms and online services. This site includes links to road strategies and initiatives and other road safety advisory bodies.
The Road Safety Advisory Council website contains important safety advice for all road users in Tasmania. It includes useful education material including numerous links to past and current road safety campaigns, documentaries, interviews, statistics and more.
The Towards Zero – Tasmanian Road Safety Strategy 2017-2026 (Towards Zero Strategy) and Towards Zero Action Plan 2017-2019 targets Tasmania’s highest risk areas and deliberately focuses on those road safety initiatives that will gain the greatest reductions in serious injuries and deaths.
Safety Performance Indicators provide detailed monitoring to assess success towards reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries from road crashes.
