Share the Road

Shared zones

'Share the Road' is a joint ACT Policing and ACT Government initiative focusing on road user behaviour affecting vulnerable road users – cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians.

The 'Share the Road' initiative focuses on:

  • different road users travelling on roads or footpaths at opposing speeds
  • courteous and respectful behaviour between road users to assist in the flow of traffic and to keep our roads safe
  • giving way to police and emergency services vehicles when they approach with lights and sirens on
  • reducing the rate of injury and fatalities on ACT roads.

Promoting a safe, respectful and harmonious relationship between road users is crucial to reducing the number of collisions on ACT roads. Regardless of how you use the road, road safety is everyone’s responsibility
