The Western Australian Centre for Road Safety Research

The Western Australian Centre for Road Safety Research (WACRSR) has been established to conduct research
into new and innovative approaches to road safety in Western Australia.


“A genuinely transformational change is needed to move away from approaches that amount to a coping mechanism to one that proactively fixes the problem once and for all.”

Research Focus Areas

WACRSR will lead three research programs to support the State Government’s Towards Zero Strategy to reduce death and serious injury on Western Australian roads

Road Safety

Our road safety research will provide the evidence to guide policies and interventions that save lives on WA roads.

Human Factors

Our human factors/simulation research studies will examine how aspects of human behaviour affect road safety, including driver distraction and fatigue.

Injury Prevention

Our injury prevention research will examine the contributing factors to injuries, their outcomes and determine effective countermeasures to prevent injuries.
