Office of Road Safety

The Australian Government established the Office of Road Safety on 1 July 2019 to provide national leadership and coordination to improve road safety outcomes.

The Government recognises that solutions will require action by all levels of government as well as the participation of the non-government sector, industry, academia and communities.

The establishment of the Office of Road Safety and its work in leading development of the next National Road Safety Strategy represents a key opportunity to build new partnerships, and strengthen existing ones, as we move towards the elimination of road trauma in Australia.

  • Road Safety data for Local Government Associations

    The Office of Road Safety has developed an information sheet for Local Government Associations (LGAs) on how to access road safety data for their state or territory. The information sheet can be found on our resources page.
