Decade of Action for Road Safety

Decade of Action badge

The Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 was launched on 28 May 2011 by the United Nations.

The initiative aims "to stabilize and then reduce the forecast level of road traffic fatalities around the world by increasing activities conducted at the national, regional and global levels”.

In support of the Decade of Action Austroads will make its Guide to Road Safety freely available in PDF form to countries and government bodies engaged in not-for-profit initiatives in the Asia Pacific region.

Requests must specify how the Guide is to be used and detail the nature and extent of circulation or copying the content. Requests should be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Guide will be provided in electronic format, watermarked to the organisation to which it is provided.

Please note that the Guide will not be made available for free to commercial users or for consultants or training providers charging commercial rates to users unless these are part of a government sponsored initiative in that country.

All Austroads research reports relating to road safety are available for free download from the Austroads publications website.

Austroads & Road Safety

The total cost of road crashes in 2011 is estimated at AUD$20.64 billion in Australia and NZD$3.54 billion in New Zealand.

On average, four people are killed and 90 are seriously injured every day on Australia's roads.

Almost everyone has, at some stage, been affected by a road crash.

The Austroads Safety Program aims to prevent death and serious injuries using a safe system approach.
