Knowledge is not power, that’s only half true.It is the sharing and application of thatknowledge that gives you real power..
What did we go through? The road safety model and application in Victoria The importance of Partnership and Coordination Road safety awareness and human behavior Road safety programs in the regions Police enforcement strategies and programs The critical role of crash data to develop policies and programs Infrastructure programs and road safety engineering Road safety audits and Blackspots The significance of community engagement
The Safe System Approach The modern approach to improving road safety recognises that road users will make mistakes and crashes will occur Roads / roadsides and vehicles should be designed so that there is a low probability of death or serious injury if a road user makes a mistake Drivers have an obligation to drive responsibly and obey the road rules – particularly speed limits This is the basis of the Safe System approach to road safety

Road Safety Engineering Challenges inIndonesia There is a reliance on international consultants because of lack of knowledgeable and experienced local road safety engineers – Risk that local factors that affect road safety will be not understood and / or overlooked – Need to work side by side with local engineers to ensure that knowledge transfer is achieved “SUSTAINABLE CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT” Design standards and guidelines are poorly documented, are not comprehensive and lack detail – Road safety engineers in Indonesia need better standards and guidelines to put theory into practice – International standards are not always suitable for local conditions
Road Safety Engineering Challenges inIndonesia Road user behaviour is poor – for example, at intersections priority is often ignored and / or not understood – Good design may therefore fail to deliver the best safety outcomes Speed limits are poorly defined, not well understood and not effectively enforced – Speed management is a key element of an effective road safety strategy – Guidelines relating to speed limits and the use of speed limit signs are required – Speeding will become a greater problem as roads are improved
Road Safety Engineering Challenges inIndonesia Lack of pedestrian facilities – footpaths and safe road crossings (approx. 25% of road deaths are pedestrians) – Pedestrian deaths are probably under reported – Where pedestrian crossings exist, they are generally ignored by drivers and riders
