Road safety within Timaru is carried out by the South Canterbury Road Safety Coordinator (RCS). The primary responsibility of the South Canterbury Road Safety Coordinator (RSC) is to coordinate the efforts of key road safety organisations and community groups throughout the District. There is no charge for this service. The role of the RSC has evolved rapidly over the past decade. Coordinators now have an integral role in reducing road trauma in New Zealand and are appointed to coordinate, facilitate, and manage local efforts to reduce identified road safety issues in their areas.
South Canterbury Road Safety (SCRS) is tasked with promoting and educating the community regarding road safety. It is their aim to reduce the amount of incidences of road trauma and crashes throughout South Canterbury, and work closely with other road safety partners to achieve this goal.
Community involvement is an essential component in achieving our road safety targets.
