3 Number of fatalities Current trend approx. 120 by 2010 Target less than 90 by 2010 Fatalities – Record result in 2006, but more effort is required

4 Number of serious injuries Current trend approx by 2010 Target less than 1000 by 2010 Serious Injuries – Good progress overall, but more effort is required

5 Australia’s Safe System

6 Fatality Risk for Head-on or Fixed Object Crash Human Tolerance to Physical Force (Rural)

7 Big casualty savings from small changes in travel speed (20% on 1100kms of road) Lower rural travel speeds reduce in vehicle operating costs, and fuel consumption Reducing fuel consumption has a direct effect on the volume of greenhouse gas emissions Estimated ideal speed on undivided rural roads (taking all safety, efficiency and environmental factors into account) is 80 km/h Multiple Wins (Rural)

8 Fatality Risk for Pedestrian Crash Human Tolerance to Physical Force (Urban)

9 extreme speeds slower speeds 4 km/h difference = 23% casualty crash reduction Results of 50km/h Default Urban Change

10 Big casualty savings from small changes in travel speed (23% in Metro Adelaide) Safer environment supports walking and cycling as desirable modes of transport More walking and cycling helps improve healthy weight, and increase exercise Active modes of transport play a key role in keeping urban communities vital and vibrant Multiple Wins (Urban)
