2013 Community Road Safety Partnership Awards
In 2013 the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources (DIER) will be conducting a Community Road Safety Partnership (CRSP) Awards program. This year is a significant milestone being the 10th year of operation of the CRSP program.
|What is CRSP?|
Community Road Safety Partnerships (CRSP) is a "grassroots" road safety program coordinated by the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources (DIER).
Initially introduced in 2003 to 12 local government authorities (LGAs), DIER has now partnered with all 29 LGAs to develop and implement targeted initiatives to address local road safety issues.
Over the years CRSP has been operating successfully addressing local issues aligned to the Tasmanian Road Safety Strategy 2007 - 2016 (TRSS).
Primarily CRSP encourages LGAs and their community networks to get involved in road safety. CRSP supports community networks by skilling people and developing knowledge to deliver better road safety programs.
|CRSP Core Approach|
The core approach of the CRSP is based upon engaging community networks and personnel to become involved and contribute to the road safety effort.
CRSP helps to organise planned activity, at the local level, targeting high risk behaviors in key focus areas such as speeding, drink driving, inattention/distraction, safer vehicles, safety of young drivers and motorcyclist safety.
Through the CRSP program, DIER stimulates local activity in the focus areas by providing human, physical and financial resources to build community capacity to achieve sustainable road safety outcomes.
To manage and plan the delivery of community road safety activities DIER personnel link closely with existing road safety groups, Police and community liaison committees, community safety organisations and / or local advisory groups.
The 2011 Progress Report is a brief compilation of the key general awareness / education strategies and major activities and events undertaken by participating CRSP communities over the last 2 years.
