Policy Position Statements

ACRS policy position statements are designed to provide a concise overview of a road safety policy issue, the principles underpinning the ACRS position on that issue, and an evidence base for the recommended policy actions. The suite of policy position statements will grow over time, and each will be reviewed and updated on a 3 yearly cycle to ensure they remain current and relevant.
