Application of Spatial Analysis to Inform the Transport Accident Commission’s Local Enhanced Enforcement Program
Keywords: Road Safety Data
The Local Enhanced Enforcement Program, a grants program funded by the Transport Accident Commission, enables members of Victoria Police to apply for funding to target dangerous road user behaviour, such as speeding and drink driving, in their local areas. In a revamp of the program, a geospatial methodology was developed to identify parts of the road network where enforcement is likely to reduce road trauma. The results were displayed on a web mapping application assisting Victoria Police to plan and prioritise their enforcement activities. This new approach has enabled police members to quickly identify high-risk locations for local enforcement operations.
