Abstract: New Zealand's road safety performance over the last 10 years has shown steady improvement in the face of sustained traffic growth. However, international comparisons reveal a need for further improvements. The Road Safety Program, which contributed substantially to past road safety outcomes, targets high-risk behaviors of road users and focuses on improving service delivery integration and partnership efficiencies. The Program includes compulsory breath testing and speed cameras; supplementary road safety package, emphasizing national advertising and focusing on enforcement resources and seat belt use; vehicle safety standards; Crash Analysis System, a central database of road crashes; and community projects, which target local needs, road safety issues and at-risk groups. Major safety initiatives include the Supplementary Road Safety Package targeting alcohol-impaired drivers and speeding, rural driving and seat belt use and a Driver Licensing Review. The document discusses public attitudes toward road safety and enforcement, the economics of safety, allocation of road safety resources and plans for the future. Table
