Draft 'Towards Zero' Road Safety Strategy 2018-2022


The City of Stonnington is updating its Road Safety Policy 2008 - 2017 with a new Draft ‘Towards Zero’ Road Safety Strategy 2018 – 2022.

Council staff, in partnership with consultants and the Monash University Accident Research Centre, developed the five-year draft ‘Towards Zero’ Road Safety Strategy and implementation plan.

The draft strategy promotes safe road-based travel, with the aim of reducing serious injury and fatal accidents on Stonnington roads.


This will be achieved by:

  • implementing infrastructure improvements to address any identified problems;
  • implementing behavioural and education strategies; and
  • adopting globally acknowledged ‘Safe Systems’ principles: safe roads, safe speeds, safe people and safe vehicles.
