Traffic safety education

All money collected from speed and red-light camera fines goes to the Road Trauma Trust Fund which, under the Road Safety Council Act 2002, funds education campaigns and key initiatives identified in Western Australia's 'Towards Zero' road safety strategy for 2008-2020.

The Road Safety Council is responsible for recommending to the Minister for Road Safety which measures to fund.

The Insurance Commission of Western Australia (ICWA) funds the graduated driver training and licensing program for pre-drivers.

ICWA sponsors Belt-Up, the seat belt campaign run by the Western Australian Football Commission, which targets Western Australian Football League (WAFL) and country football spectators. It also sponsors the supervised driving campaign which encourages learner drivers to get 120 hours of supervised driving before taking their driving test.

ICWA also funds the Western Australia Road Safety Forum and Awards as well as the Road Safety Council's regional visits.
