Young drivers are overrepresented in New Zealand fatal and serious crash statistics. The good news is that there are many resources and courses available to help increase a young drivers skills and confidence to lower their risk of a crash.
We collaborate with National Agencies to improve road safety and reduce the number of injuries and deaths on our roads.
Road Safety Strategy
Road crashes impose a massive and unacceptable burden of death, pain and suffering on Selwyn Roads. The road safety strategy is a critical element in the Council's efforts, along with NZ Police and key partners, to reduce crashes and improve road safety. This is done through a long-term, coordinated framework of projects and programmes.
The road safety team's role is to co-ordinate road safety campaigns, courses and activities. The campaigns target identified local road safety issues. The courses and activities aim to increase knowledge and skills of Selwyn drivers and motorcyclists.
