The United Nations introduced the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, on 11 May 2011. The Sydney launch was held in Parliament House, Sydney, on that date. APD supports the Decade of Action for Road Safety through the Fall Zero program, and by assisting Councils with their Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plans.

Fall Zero is a pedestrian safety program that aims to reduce the incidence of injury in the public domain. The NSW Local Government and Shires Associations have scheduled a series of Workshops on Fall Zero in Sydney on Monday, 17 September 2012 and Wednesday, 1 May 2013.
