The NRMA has always had a focus on road safety, and we have historically played a key role in lobbying government for improvements to NSW and ACT roads.
Today, this focus continues with research and campaigning on safety and infrastructure challenges, traffic congestion, public transport, tourism, alternative fuel sources, and the use of blue highways.
Rate Your Road
This year the NRMA opened the Rate Your Road survey, inviting Members to rate roads based on their condition, level of safety and congestion. More than 23,000 people had their say on the state of NSW roads, and we've released a comprehensive overview and the results in key areas which are listed below.
We'll use these responses to lobby the government for positive action in eliminating major transport pain points on NSW and ACT roads.
It’s not the first time we’ve ran this initiative. In the lead-up to the 2011 NSW election, we launched the Seeing Red on Roads campaign, which saw over 12,000 Members have their say on what roads were in most need of being fixed.
Many of the major traffic and road problems identified by this campaign have since been upgraded or are in the process of being addressed. These include the Pacific Highway, NorthConnex, WestConnex, sections of the Princes Highway and the North-West Rail.

In the lead up to the NSW Election in March, the NRMA conducted the largest transport survey in the state’s history, Rate Your Road.
Now, in the lead up to the Federal Election, the Australian Automobile Association - the peak organisation representing Australia's motoring clubs - is running a survey so that you can have your say on 'My Money. My Transport'. If you choose to participate in this survey, you will have the option of forwarding your input to local candidates so that they are made directly aware of your feedback and concerns.
