Reducing Heavy Vehicle Rear Impact Crashes: Autonomous Emergency Braking

Aust Gov
11th September 2019

On 20 August 2019, the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development released a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS).

The RIS identifies Autonomous Emergency Braking Systems (AEBS) as an effective countermeasure to rear impact road trauma caused by heavy vehicles, and explores a range of policy options to increase the fitment to new heavy vehicles and buses.

The RIS is seeking comments from any interested persons or parties with an interest in this topic by close of business, 4 October 2019. More information on the consultation process, including how to make a submission, can be found here.

The RIS was prepared by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development. The RIS has been certified by the Department and was subject to an early assessment by the OBPR.
