Experience tells us strong leadership, effective co-ordination, engagement with communities and accountability for actions are critical to achieving the Road to Zero vision for New Zealand where no one is killed or seriously injured in road crashes.

System management is a focus area of Road to Zero. The objective of the system management focus area is that New Zealand’s road safety management system reflects international best practice.

Initial actions

Initial actions for this focus area include:

  • Strengthening national system leadership and co-ordination or road safety.
  • Supporting effective regional responses.
  • Supporting monitoring and evaluation.
  • Developing and sharing evidence.
  • Improving road safety outcomes for Maori.
  • Assisting public understanding.
  • Improving post-crash response.

Support effective regional responses

How we work, and how we work together, will be critical for the success of Road to Zero.

We want to:

  • Build understanding and support for road safety interventions so we can embed changes that need to be made.
  • Continue to develop the Integration Intervention Logic Model. This is used to calculate potential savings in deaths and serious injuries through a combination of interventions across all parts of the transport system. This tool will be available for our road safety partners in coming months.
  • Improve how we collect and share road safety data with stakeholders so we can be confident decisions are based on sound evidence and outcomes evaluated effectively.
  • Respond to key capacity and capability gaps to ensure local and regional road safety responses are well-resourced and our guidelines are being applied robustly and consistently.
  • Continue to promote updates to standards and guidelines and offer technical and practical courses for road safety professionals.
  • Ensure proven training programmes are well resourced and promoted. Training programmes include:

Road to Zero resources

Road to Zero adopts Vision Zero and is guided by the Safe System approach. We have developed a range of resources to help road safety practitioners apply the principles of Vision Zero and the Safe System approach in their roles.
