Abstract: Local governments are important players in road safety as road transport system designers, operators and managers. Local governments are well positioned to positively influence road safety outcomes as leaders and influencers in their local communities. Towards Zero, the WA road safety strategy 2008-2020, recognises the part local governments play in the shared responsibility approach to road safety. The Shire of Yalgoo is one of 141 local governments in Western Australia, located in the Mid-west region approximately 524 km north-east of Perth. The Shire of Yalgoo is a small remote local government covering an area of 33,528 km with a population of 242. The shire is responsible for design, operation and management of 115km of sealed roads and 1,126 km of unsealed roads.
