Who can join?

SASTA was formed to meet the growing professional development demands among professionals working in, or contracted by, local government to deliver community-funded road safety and sustainable transport activities.
This usually includes Road Safety Coordinators, Travel Planners, Engineers, Planners and Consultants working for a local, regional or national government.

SASTA also has associate membership available for those professionals who are frequent local government partners in road safety and sustainable transport, e.g. injury prevention, health, Police, government departments, education, business and community groups.

Associate members receive the same benefits as full members except for voting rights at the SASTA Annual General Meeting.
