National Road Safety Strategy isn't working - study

No state or territory is on track to meet its road-toll reduction target under the National Road Safety Strategy (NRSS), according to new road trauma benchmarking from the Australian Automobile Association (AAA). Developed in 2010, the NRSS is aiming for a 30 per cent reduction in road fatalities by 2020. We've seen a 10.3 per cent reduction in the annual national road toll since the program started, well behind what's required if that target is to be met.
