Learn how New Zealand government agencies and the AA are contributing to the Decade of Action for Road Safety which aims to save millions of lives worldwide.
The AA works to help inform all drivers about how to keep themselves and other road users safe, reducing the number of injuries and fatalities on our roads.
The average age of a New Zealand car is currently 13 years old. The AA believes getting more people into safer vehicles will significantly improve our safety.
The design and safety features of a road can play a critical role in a crash. The AA wants to ensure roads are designed for their purpose & traffic volumes.
Travelling at safe speeds for the conditions is one of the key elements for road safety. The AA supports appropriate, consistent and clear speed limits.
New Zealand’s road safety record has been steadily improving for decades but we still lag behind many other developed countries.
The New Zealand Government’s 2010-2020 road safety strategy, titled Safer Journeys, is based on a safe system approach that is supported by the AA.
