**EXPLANATORY NOTE: a road fatality is recorded as part of the ACT road toll if the death falls within the following parameters:

  • Collisions occuring on roads or road related areas and causing death within the ACT (and region) are recorded as part of the road toll, regardless if you are a citizen of the ACT. If an ACT citizen dies on a road outside of the ACT, it is counted in that jurisdictions road toll.
  • Collisions causing death on private property, for example, a farm, are not counted as part of the ACT road toll (as these collisions do not take place on the public road).
  • The Coroner determines the cause of death. If the Coroner determines that the cause of death was a result of natural causes as opposed to injuries incurred by a collision, the individual is not counted as part of the road toll. For example, if a medical condition such as a heart attack caused the collision.
  • A collision deemed a deliberate act (beyond reasonable doubt) by ACT Policing and the Office of Road Safety does not count as part of the ACT road toll.
  • The ACT, in line with all other jurisdictions in Australia, adopts the 30 day national standard in recording road deaths. If a person dies more than 30 days after the collision they are not recorded as part of the road toll.
