ACRS 2012 National Conference

9-10 August 2012


The 2012 Australasian College of Road Safety national conference was held in Sydney at The Menzies Sydney Hotel on 9 and 10 August. The Conference aims were to take road safety to the next level of knowledge and implementation and to assist in the translation of research into action in keeping with the Safe System and Decade of Action for Road Safety. The conference allowed for direct interaction with presenters and was an important opportunity to network with senior practitioners and those with policy responsibilities in Australasia.

The 2012 theme was ‘expanding the reach’. While substantial reductions in road trauma have been achieved in recent decades, not all road users have benefited equally. The organisers were looking for papers including theme presentations on safety for the following road user groups and needs:-

  • Rural;
  • low socioeconomic status;
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander;
  • Special needs;
  • International and new resident;
  • Motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians;
  • Heavy vehicle drivers;
  • Crashes in off-road environments;
  • Crash response and post-crash care;
  • Passengers – children and adults.
