About the WA Road Safety Commission:

As the voice of road safety in Western Australia, the Road Safety Commission is dedicated to tackling road trauma, which is one of the biggest and most sustained causes of death and injury in our community.

The Commission was created in July 2015 and has the responsibility to reduce road trauma on WA’s roads by harnessing the knowledge, expertise and interest in our community.

The aim of the Commission is to support the State government’s road safety strategy, Towards Zero 2008-2020, which aims to reduce the number of people who are killed or seriously injured in crashes on metropolitan and regional roads in Western Australia by 40%.

This is achieved through the continuation of delivery and implementation of the strategic directions outlined for a safe system including the four cornerstones of: Safe Road Use, Safe Roads and Roadsides, Safe Speeds, and Safe Vehicles.

Through an advisory framework, the RSC incorporates a diverse range of interests and perspectives from the private sector, government agencies and the community, which enables input into policy and initiatives to be researched, developed or implemented to improve road safety outcomes. By collaborating with these groups and key stakeholders, the RSC is provided with strategic, operational and tactical advice which ensures innovation, agility and independence in the programs and campaigns developed.

The RSC programs and campaigns aim to protect all road users, ranging from the outback drivers of heavy haulage vehicles and sedans to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, seniors, people with disabilities, cyclists and motorbike riders.
