Assessing fitness to drive (AFTD) is a joint NTC and Austroads publication containing medical standards to guide the health assessments of drivers for licensing.
In 2013 there were 1,192 people killed in road accidents in Australia. While the social costs of road traumas is difficult to measure, the economic cost of road crashes in Australia is estimated at $27 billion each year.
The NTC is working towards safer roads helping to achieve a 30 per cent reduction in road deaths and serious injuries, in line with the National Road Safety Strategy 2011-2020, through ensuring our laws and regulations are up to date with best practice and that they can support a safe transport system.
