Reporting road crashes in the media

Injury Matters has released ‘Reporting Road Traffic Incidents: A resource for the media and road safety sector to support individuals to report road traffic incidents in a manner that is respectful to those impacted by road trauma and has a positive effect on road safety.

Journalists, reporters, editors, other media personnel and road safety professionals have a powerful role in educating and driving societal change. Injury Matters encourages everyone reporting on road traffic incidents in WA to consider their influence on their audiences and join us in reducing the impact of road trauma on the WA community.

Injury Matters recognises that stories about road crashes can adversely impact those previously affected by another trauma. We request you acknowledge this and encourage you to include details for support services available, not only for this event but for any future road stories.

Suggested wording: If you or someone you know has been affected by road trauma, contact Road Trauma Support WA on 1300 004 814 or visit
