As the regulator of the compulsory third party insurance scheme for NSW, the MAA has a role in contributing to the reduction of the incidence and impact of road trauma and supporting safety education. The MAA's road safety activity focuses on decreasing serious injuries and gives priority to those areas including those that incur the greatest costs to the CTP scheme. Current road safety priorities for the MAA include:
- young people aged 17 to 25 years
- pedestrians of all ages
- children aged 0 to 16 years, particularly as pedestrians and passengers
For more information on the MAA's youth and child road safety activities, go to child roadsafety.
Reports on research in these priority areas can be found in the Publications: Injury Prevention - Research & Reports section.
The MAA's road safety activities are strategically aligned to the NSW Government’s road safety strategy, Road Safety 2010, which sets the NSW Government’s directions in and priorities for road safety. Road safety in NSW is a shared responsibility, with the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority as the lead agency. As one of the partner organisations, the MAA has contributed to achieving reduced levels of death and injury.
