Council's role in road safety awareness
Blayney Shire Council is proud to be a partner in the Local Government's Road Safety Program. Council works with Roads & Maritime Services and key road safety stakeholders to address behavioural issues affecting road safety in our road environment. This program has proven to be highly effective in raising awareness about road safety in the Blayney Shire community.

Commitment to the program is demonstrated by employment of a Road Safety Officer (RSO) since 1999. The RSO has effectively implemented many road safety campaigns addressing road safety issues impacting on our community. Several campaigns have attracted local, state and national attention as role models for best practise and have been recognised with awards from key road safety stakeholders.
Over the years Council has been successful in attracting funding from various funding bodies to support the project work of the RSO.

Blayney Shire Council is an active member of the 'Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020' which is a United Nations initiative that aims to halve projected global road deaths over the next 10 years by encouraging countries to increase activities at all levels to support road safety. This initiative is being led internationally by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and supported by the Federation Internationale de L'Automobile (FIA) Foundation. The Australasian College of Road Safety and the NSW Government are committed to achieve the worldwide goal of saving 5 million lives by 2020. Blayney Shire Council is proud to be involved in this initiative.
