Who is responsible for Road Safety Issues?
Manningham has adopted VicRoad’s Safe System approach which recognises that road safety is an individual responsibility that must be accepted by the community, as well as a Government responsibility. There is a need for physical infrastructure improvements to make roads and vehicles safer and behaviour change programs to raise community awareness.
The table below lists the organisations that are responsible for various road safety issues:
