Implementing safesystem treatments in NSW school zones
Submission Date: 2019
Children’s road safety is one focus of working towards zero, and school zones are provided in NSW wherever a school has a direct road access point. NSW has implemented a suite of school zone safety treatments via a series of targeted programs, since school zones were implemented for all NSW schools in 2003. As a result, school zones are now one of the safest areas of the NSW road network. Fewer crashes now occur in NSW school zones, and research indicates that drivers take particular care.
