Purpose of the Report

To provide the Infrastructure Network Committee with a copy of the Road Safety Annual Achievement Report for July 2018 to June 2019, from Far North REAP.

Executive Summary

·        The Far North REAP have completed the 1st year of the 3 year contract for the delivery of Road Safety Promotion Activities for the Far North District Council. All planned intervention activities have been met and over exceeded. Whanau who participate in our Road Safety programmes increase their knowledge and awareness through educational initiatives. Alcohol and drugs, Restraints, Speed and Young Drivers continue to be the high-risk focus areas for our District.

·        Distractions and Fatigue are medium-risk focus areas. Crash and Fatality studies observe distractions as a common factor to crashes.

 

Recommendation

That the Infrastructure Network Committee receives the Annual Achievement Report for 2018/19 from Far North REAP.

 

 

1) Background

Far North REAP has been delivering the Road Safety Education Programme for FNDC for the last 4 years (2015 to 2019). This is an NZTA subsidised activity and is a core programme that Council are required to deliver under the LTP.

The budget approved in the Long Term Plan for road safety in 2018/2019 was $1,138,333 including NZTA subsidy at 66%.

2) Discussion and Options

A Council meeting held on 28 November 2018 considered a report covering the Council’s Road Safety Education Programme and resolved:

 

Delivery of service review

A review of service delivery has been requested by NZTA for this contract and all similar contracts across Northland. The Northern Transportation Alliance (NTA) on behalf of the three Northland Councils has engaged consultants Rational Ltd, to undertake a LGA, s17a Activity Review for all Council’s Road Safety Promotion Activities.

NZTA has supported a rollover of the existing service delivery arrangements until 2020/2021, for all three existing contract arrangements in Northland, with Far North REAP and the Northland Road Safety Trust. This is on the condition that the service delivery review is undertaken, any improvements identified in the review are incorporated into the roll-over contracts, and that Council procures new contract arrangements from the market in 2021/2022.

Far North REAP, the existing supplier has specialist knowledge and experience in delivering these programmes and is recognised as national leader in road safety education programmes

It should also be noted that NZTA, FNDC & Far North REAP work in a collaborative environment that provides opportunities to review our process and performance so we continue to deliver best practice and value for money for these programmes.

Reason for the recommendation

The Far north REAP are required to report to Council on their achievements and progress against KPI’s in accordance with their contract requirements.

3) Financial Implications and Budgetary Provision

There are no financial implications with respect to this agenda item.

Priority Areas
Ministry of Transport (MOT) along with Crash Analysis Statictics (CAS) specify what the priority areas are nationally. They also give us an indication of what the high and medium risk are within our districts.
Below is a break down of the priority areas and an overview of a few initiatives the districts deliver. 
Focus areas in the High Risk include:
• Alcohol & Drug
• Safer Speeds
• Young Driver
• High Risk 
• Restraints 
Medium risk include:
• Fatigue
• Distractions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Far North Districts Road Safety Promotion Activity List (July 2018 – June 2019).

The Far North Districts have completed the 1st year of the 3-year contract. All planned intervention activities have been met and over exceeded. Whanau who participate in our Road Safety Programmes increase their knowledge and awareness through educational initiatives.  Alcohol & Drugs, Restraints, Speeds and Young Drivers continue to be the high-risk focus areas for our District. 
Distractions and Fatigue are our medium-risk focus areas. Crash and Fatality studies observe distractions as a common factor to crashes. 

Snapshot of activities throughout the district for Return of Investment:
•	Driveway runover kit at local events
•	Cycle safety in schools and community events
•	Social Media/ Cinema/ Radio/ local Newsletter promotions
•	Cinema promotions
•	Fatigue Stops on State Highways
•	Fatigue promotions at Expo’s, Waitangi Day, Marae Wananga, Schools
•	“One Tear Too Many” campaign and resource messaging “Slow down”, “Drive Sober” & “Seatbelts on”
•	Educational Driving Courses – Learners, Restricted, Full & Defensive Driving Courses – cover all our district focus areas
•	Restraints/ Checking Clinics – ECE, Kohanga Reo, Kura, Schools, Marae, Sports Events, parenting groups, out-reach centres
•	Mobile Speed Trailer

•	Consultancy and networking with bus companies, NZ Police, Roading Engineers, NZTA, NTA, MSD, Howard League Trust, Solomon Group, Waitomo Papakainga
•	Educational Police Checkpoints throughout

Trends and Issues:
•	A major barrier for Hokianga, Kaikohe and Moerewa is access to testing sites for practical driving tests. Currently they have to travel to Kerikeri or Kaitaia. Far North REAP will investigate further.
•	There is an increase of youth diagnosed with dyslexia; Driving programmes have been developed to cater to these students.
•	Increase in older drivers needing on-road assessment drives.
