Welcome to RoadWise

Who are we?

The RoadWise Program was founded in 1994 and works with Local Governments and the community to support the implementation of Towards Zero, the road safety strategy for WA 2008-2020. Three levels of coordination (State, Regional and Local) make up the operational framework for road safety in Western Australia. The RoadWise Program is supported by the Road Safety Council of WA and is funded through the Road Trauma Trust Account; which is made up of the speed and red light camera fines received in WA and the State Road Funds to Local Government Agreement sourced from WA vehicle licensing fees.

What do we do?

The RoadWise Program supports Local Governments, community groups, private businesses and individuals to become involved in the road safety network around the state. Through a team of regional and metropolitan based staff, RoadWise achieves this by supporting local road safety committees, providing access to resources and training, and increasing knowledge, which all contribute to building the capacity of the network to make an effective contribution to improving road safety in Western Australia.
