2016 Safe Cycling Awards

2016 Safe Cycling Awards

The Safe Cycling Awards will provide an opportunity to recognise excellence by South Australian local government.

Award criteria is based on initiatives that actively encourage safe cycling behaviours, where infrastructure improvements have enhanced cycling safety, and where councils have displayed active support for community cycling groups or programs which has led to safer cycling outcomes.

Along with the award and state-wide recognition for being a cycle safe city, winners of each category will receive a grant from the Motor Accident Commission of $2,000.

Councils will be divided into three categories based on location, size and capabilities:

  •  Metropolitan councils
  • Regional councils with a population under 10,000 residents
  • Regional councils with a population over 10,000 residents

Safer cycling elements are those that support safe cycling culture and education as well as providing environments that community members are confident to cycle in.

Contributions to safe cycling by councils in one or more of the following three areas will be considered in the judging process:

Physical – infrastructure that supports cycling and use of cycling equipment;

Cultural – behavioural change and awareness of cycling and safety; and,

Community – the support of community groups and events connected with cycling.


Applications open Monday 2 May 2016 and close Friday 2 September 2016.

Awards will be presented at the Local Government Association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) October 20-21 2016, giving winning councils the opportunity to share their initiatives and accept their award.

Put a First Aid Kit in your car

Put a First Aid Kit in your car

Driving is a risky and complex task and something that many South Australians do every day. We take all sorts of measures to stay safe on the road, and one of those can be carrying a first aid kit in your car.

A first aid kit can help you to provide some immediate treatment or care following a road crash until emergency services arrive.

There are many different types of first aid kits on the market, including kits made specifically for storage in vehicles. Whichever kit you choose, make sure it’s readily accessible and adequately stocked.

The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) encourages all motorists to drive carefully and follow the road rules - and you can go the extra mile with your safety, by storing a first aid kit in your car.

Safety ratings vital

Safety ratings vital

The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) ensures there is a ratings system which helps you to make safer vehicle choices. 

ANCAP provides independent vehicle safety information through the publication of ANCAP safety ratings.  ANCAP safety ratings take into account the level of occupant and pedestrian protection provided by new cars through the conduct of physical crash tests and the assessment of collision avoidance technologies.

In each of the physical tests, dummies are used to scientifically measure the various forces on occupants in the crash.

The data gathered is then assessed in conjunction with a physical assessment of the vehicle, and a score determined for each test.

In addition, vehicles must be fitted with certain safety features and safety assist technologies. These requirements are then assessed alongside the physical crash test scores with an overall score translated into an ANCAP safety rating of between 1 to 5 stars.

The more stars, the better the vehicle performed in ANCAP tests. To achieve the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating, a vehicle must achieve the highest standards in all tests and feature advanced safety assist technologies.

Where Allianz obtains information using the Prescribed Authority, a copy of that information will be provided to you. Once you have returned the completed Injury Claim Form and Prescribed Authority to Allianz, a claims consultant will contact you to discuss your claim.

MAC is committed to supporting early access to reasonable and necessary treatment to optimize your recovery from your injury, and providing a properly completed Approved Injury Claim Form and Prescribed Authority will assist MAC to achieve this goal.
