Recommendations

The following recommendations are proposed:

 

1. A Working Program

A national working program to further investigate driveway accidents to include aspects of housing regulations, planning, vehicle specifications and manufacturers.

 

 

 

2. Official systematic recording of vehicle related driveway fatalities and non-fatal injuries.

An official recording database is to be made available and accessible by the relevant organisations.

 

 

3. Extensive public and educational awareness programs.

Campaigns to be recurring – especially over the summer months approach as well more synchronised between organisations.

 

 

 

4. Further awareness into the New Zealand Rode Code.

Further awareness into the New Zealand Rode Code and the driver education system about the dangers of driveways and the safety of children.
