Vision and ten-year targets
Zero lives lost on our roads by 2050
To achieve the national vision of zero lives lost by 2050, over the next ten years our goal is to:
- develop a culture of road safety in the community and our workplaces, with local knowledge and capacity to support people and families; and
- have safer road infrastructure and transport options for all road users, ages and abilities.
To achieve this, individual road users, State and Local Government, regulatory partners, non-government organisations and the private sector all need to play a role in the long term aspiration to dramatically reduce harm on our roads.
The South Australian Government is adopting the targets supported for inclusion in the National Road Safety Strategy 2021-2030, of at least a 50% reduction in lives lost and at least a 30% reduction in serious injuries on South Australian roads by 2030. As this Strategy extends to 2031, the targets are adjusted accordingly.
National Road Safety Strategy Targets by 2030 for South Australia
96 lives lost
Fewer than 48 lives lost
Fewer than 43 lives lost
708 serious injuries
Fewer than 496 serious injuries
Fewer than 474 serious injuries
The targets are based on halving the total number of lives lost and reducing the total number of serious injuries by 30%, rather than on a per capita basis.
