Northland's annual road toll over the last 5 years

On average, 1 person is killed every day on New Zealand roads and another 7 are seriously injured. Deaths or serious injuries should not be an inevitable cost of travelling. Northland roads are challenging and unforgiving.
The goal is to reduce death & serious injury crashes by 40% by 2030 is the driving force behind the Road to Zero Strategy 2020-2030.
