Auckland Transport is committed to working with the community, in partnership with national agencies, to improve road safety and reduce the number of people killed or injured on our roads.
The most recent road safety statistics from the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), reported 2556 injury crashes and 8130 non-injury crashes in the Auckland Region in 2008. Alcohol, night time crashes, vulnerable road users and intersections being the leading road safety issues.
New initiatives and programmes are introduced every year aimed at protecting our most vulnerable road users. These include setting up school speed zones and adding cycle lanes to busy roads. However, it is up to all road users to observe the road rules and take care on the roads to help keep everyone safe.
