Vision Zero: Road Safety in Tasmania
Tuesday, 2 July 2019
8.00pm on the RST Rooms,
Customs House Building, Dunn Place, Hobart
Garry Baily, as chair of the Road Safety Advisor Council (RSAC) will present a lecture on their “vision zero” – working towards reducing the number of serious casualties associated with road accidents. The public have a seemingly high tolerance of serious road casualties, with an average of 35 people killed, and 260 injured annually in Tasmania. If this incidence of deaths and injuries happened in one place or time, it would no doubt led to public outcry, and demands for something to be done. The RSAC is implementing a range of initiatives and systems that underpin the Towards Zero strategy, which aims to change people’s perceptions about speeding.
