Road Safety

Understanding how to engage men in road safety will pay enormous dividends in reducing the heavily-male-biased road toll in Australia. With 1288 lives lost in the year to June 2011 of which 939 were male, there is clearly a heavy bias towards the impact on male life expectancy compared to females.

These resources aim to showcase what is being done to address this outcome and provide information that helps practitioners to better engage men in safe driving practices.
