Improving our road infrastructure, and setting safe speed limits are key so we can achieve the Road to Zero vision for New Zealand where no one is killed or seriously injured in road crashes.

Improving our road infrastructure requires implementing safety improvements like median barriers, roundabouts and raised safety platforms wherever possible.
Speed limits need to reflect the risk on a road. A small change in speed makes a big difference, especially when people who walk or cycle are involved. Even when speed doesn’t cause the crash, it determines whether anyone is killed, injured, or walks away unharmed.
