The Australian Transport Council has approved the National Road Safety Action Plan for 2007 and 2008, that is designed to provide a clear focus on initiatives that offer the most realistic prospect of substantial safety gains over the next two years.  The new plan is part of the Council’s ongoing National Road Safety Strategy 2001–2010 that aims to reduce the annual number of road deaths by 40 percent to a rate of no more than 5.6 per 100,000 by December 2010.
