RoadWise program

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder houses the Road Safety Officer for the Goldfields-Esperance region, and has allocated part of its annual budget for promoting road safety in the community.

Road safety in Western Australia is coordinated at 3 levels:

  •  State
  •  Regional
  •  Local

The RoadWise program operates at the local government and community level. It builds the capacity of local governments and other agencies to improve community-based road safety in support of the State Government's Road Safety Strategy 2008-2020.

The RoadWise program was started by the WA Local Government Association in 1994, with support from the Road Safety Council of WA and funding by the Road Trauma Trust Account.
