Our vision and target
Driving the Towards Zero Strategy is the long-term vision of a Tasmania where no one is seriously injured or killed as the result of a crash on our roads.
While casualties per head of population and per registered vehicle continue to fall as more and more people use the roads, the total number of casualties has plateaued.
Currently, around 314 people are seriously injured or killed on Tasmanian roads every year. This is totally unacceptable.
In the short term, our target is to reduce serious injuries and fatalities to fewer than 200 by 2026.
The road safety measures outlined in the Action Plan 2020-2024 are underpinned by the 13 key directions identified in the Towards Zero Strategy. The aim of these measures is to get Tasmania on track to achieving our ambitious targets.
