About the RoadWise Program

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 funded by the State Government through the Road Trauma Trust Account (speed and red light camera fines) and the State Road Funds to Local Government Agreement (sourced from WA vehicle licensing fees).

What do we do?

WALGA's RoadWise works with communities to take action to reduce road trauma.

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.

RoadWise Case Studies

A series of case studies have been prepared which showcase the contributions made by RoadWise Committees or Local Governments across the state.

There is one case study per region which allows for a well-rounded overview of the types of road safety activities and initiatives being implemented state-wide.
