The Australasian College of Road Safety (ACRS) is the region’s peak membership association for road safety professionals, advocates, and members of the public who are focused on saving lives and serious injuries on our roads.

Australia’s current road toll sits at approximately 40,000+ per year – this includes 1,200 deaths and 40,000 serious injuries every year.  The subsequent impact on Australia’s health system and communities is enormous, with the cost in monetary terms alleged to be $30+bn annually – more than our national defence budget. The United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 underpins Australia’s National Road Safety Strategy 2011-2020 (NRSS), and was recently praised by our Prime Minister as marking a ‘turning point for global road safety, (working towards) sparing people from avoidable deaths and injuries that cause so much anguish and cost for our communities’.   The primary aim of the College is to improve the outcomes of the NRSS. The College provides a rich, collaborative environment to promote communication, networking, professionalism & advocacy across all spheres of road safety – including policy, advocacy, research, application & dissemination. Our current membership includes experts from across all areas of road safety: policy makers, academics, community organisations, researchers, federal, state and local government agencies, private companies and members of the public.  We attract and retain these experts through the active and inclusive nature of our organisation, and we warmly invite all those interested in saving lives and serious injuries on our roads to be a part of our progressive organisation.
