New Zealand's road safety strategy 2010-2020
Safer Journeys is the government's strategy to guide improvements in road safety over the period 2010 to 2020. The strategy's vision is a safe road system increasingly free of death and serious injury and introduces the Safe System approach to New Zealand.
The Safe System recognises that people make mistakes and are vulnerable in a crash. It reduces the price paid for a mistake so crashes don't result in loss of life or limb. Mistakes are inevitable – deaths and serious injuries from road crashes are not.
New Zealand’s next road safety strategy
With the current Safer Journeys strategy ending in 2020, the Ministry of Transport is leading the development of a new 10-year road safety strategy.
