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.”
National Road Safety Strategy
Working together Towards Zero
Research Focus Areas
WACRSR will support four programs to support the State Government’s Driving Change Strategy (2020 -2023) to reduce death and serious injury on Western Australian roads
Our road safety research will provide the evidence to guide policies and interventions that save lives on WA roads.
Our human factors/simulation research studies will examine how aspects of human behaviour affect road safety, including driver distraction and fatigue.
Our injury prevention research will examine the contributing factors to injuries, their outcomes and determine effective countermeasures to prevent injuries.
Main Roads WA
Our work for Main Roads Western Australia will focus on making the roads safer for all Western Australians by undertaking in-depth evaluations of road programs, road design assessments, billboard safety and other road safety issues.
