Tonight Senator Alex Gallacher spoke in the Australian Senate about Road Safety. He thanked the Australasian College of Road Safety for our efforts today in Parliament and our continued work highlighting and advocating for Road Safety, including the presentation of our 2017 ACRS Submission to Federal Parliamentarians - delivered in hard copy today to all federal politicians. (2017 ACRS Submission to Federal Parliamentarians can be downloaded at http://bit.ly/2nFFOqm).
The Senator also presses the point for Australia to mandate Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Lane Keep Assist, noting it is "unacceptable that an important safety technology is often removed for the Australasian market, while in the US AEB will become a standard feature and in the European Union AEB is mandatory for new vehicles."
The Australasian College of Road Safety (ACRS) is the region’s peak membership association for road safety professionals, advocates, and members of the public who are focused on saving lives and serious injuries on our roads.
ACRS membership consists of organisations and individuals with expertise, experience and/or interest across a wide variety of road safety sectors - See the ACRS Website for further information on membership: http://acrs.org.au/membership
ACRS is a joint Foundation Partner with Austroads of the annual Australasian Road Safety Conference, which includes the Australasian College of Road Safety Awards. These awards recognise outstanding achievement by individuals through the ACRS Fellowship, by groups through the 3M-ACRS Diamond Road Safety Awards, and to many organisations and experts through conference awards.
