Creating a safe road system

Everyone should get to where they’re going safely, whether they’re walking, cycling, driving, motorcycling or using public transport.

Road to Zero is Aotearoa New Zealand’s road safety strategy to 2030. It puts people at the heart of transport and sets us on a path to achieve Vision Zero:

‘An Aotearoa where no one is killed or seriously injured on our roads.’

To achieve this we need to improve all parts of the transport system.

This is a job for all of us – it includes anyone using our roads and for everyone working in the transport sector.

You can contribute by:

  • keeping your motorcycle well maintained
  • travelling at a safe speed for the road and conditions – such as the weather, and other traffic on the road
  • giving riding your full attention
  • thinking ahead and leaving plenty of time for your journeys – even short ones
  • sharing the road safely with others
  • staying sober and drug-free when riding and encouraging your friends to do the same.

Meanwhile, we and our road safety partners will work to:

  • ensure roads and intersections are forgiving of peoples’ mistakes
  • improve people’s understanding of safe speeds and safe behaviour
  • encourage the uptake of vehicle safety features that help prevent crashes.

People dying and being seriously injured on our roads is preventable if we all play our part. Please do your bit to keep yourself, your friends and whānau safe on our roads.
