Abstract

Fact Sheet highlighting the Vision Zero concept and the Safe System approach, with Enhanced Crash Investigation Study (ECIS) data illustrating the percent of crashes where the Safe Driver, Safe Vehicle, and Safe Roads criteria were met (and overlap), and not met. The data shows that substantial opportunity exists to improve the safety of Victoria’s road transport system and prevent many drivers being seriously injured in a crash. Improved vehicle safety, matching speed limits to surrounding infrastructure and the safety of the vehicle fleet, installing safe road infrastructure, and improved driver compliance will all play a role in achieving Vision Zero.
