The Austrian Federal Government, in particular the Federal Ministry as the main government body responsible for road safety, have set themselves the target of making Austria's roads among the safest in the European Union (EU).

Significant progress has already been achieved throught the first Austrian Road Safety Programme (2002–2010), but road safety figures for Austria are still only average for the EU as a whole, and even below average for the EU-15 countries.
