Riding towards zero deaths and serious injuries on our roads The Transport Accident Commission’s Towards Zero vision is for zero deaths and serious injuries on our roads; we believe in a safer road system for all road users.

Each and every one of us, as motorists, motorcyclists, pedestrians and cyclists has the shared responsibility to use our road system safely and with respect for each other.

Together we can ride towards a future where every journey is a safe one.

Parks Victoria is the statutory authority of the Victorian Government that manages Victoria’s national and state parks, and other land and waterways of environmental or cultural significance.

We are proud to welcome Towards Zero Race Melbourne to Albert Park and the rest of the event to Victoria’s spectacular coastline.
