All jurisdictions will work together to better address road safety in remote areas, consistent with the Transport and Infrastructure Council's National Remote and Regional Transport Strategy; with particular attention to: tailored solutions (eg access to driver licensing, training and education); unlicensed driving; vehicle safety including use of seatbelts and child restraints; speed management; targeted speed reductions in advance of engineering treatments; and gateway and threshold treatments for high speed to low speed transition zones. There is scope for greater consideration of whole of government approaches to remote transport issues, such as alternative community transport options.
