Young road users, older road users, cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists, Aboriginal road users and heavy vehicles drivers all have a role to play in the safe use of the road network.
Towards Zero Together - South Australia's Road Safety Strategy 2020 supports the priority actions outlined in the Road Safety Action Plan 2011-2012.
Road safety begins and ends with road users. And all road crash statistics involve road users.
Pedestrians, cyclists and riders of motorcycles, horses and skateboards; drivers of cars and heavy vehicles; the young, the elderly, the disabled; novice drivers, new arrivals and international visitors - all road users should know their responsibilities and respect the rights of all who share our roads.
A fair proportion of our road users are considered vulnerable, in that they do not have the protection of a rigid vehicle, they move more slowly and are not as visible as others. Vulnerable road users - pedestrians, cyclists, scooters and skaters, the elderly and the young – also share both the right to be safe on the road and the responsibility of knowing road rules and being courteous to others.
