Abstract: The starting point for this project was the proposition that safe and sufficient transport should be accessible to everyone, and that a lack of safety can be a consequence of insufficient or inadequate transport. The study themes and approach were informed by a series of forums held in 2005, 2006 and 2007, involving representatives of Aboriginal organisations and officers of government agencies. Consultations with focus groups and personal interviews were conducted, and case studies recorded, in several Aboriginal communities (Adelaide and the far west coast region of South Australia). Literature reviews were conducted in the areas of driver licensing, seatbelt and restraint use, and the transport issues related to Aboriginal health and disability. The availability of safe and sufficient transport has diverse implications for safety, health and welfare. Recommendations were made in relation to improving driver licensing, seatbelt and restraint use, provision of public transport and programs to address the problems of drink driving and driving while affected by drugs.
