The CAS is an integrated computer system that provides tools to collect, map, query, and report on road crash and related data. It contains data from all traffic crashes reported by police. It provides a platform for the development of road safety initiatives. The information provided by CAS is used to determine and analyse trends, which help direct recommendations around road safety funding allocations, target road safety programmes and monitor their performance.

The NZ Transport Agency manages the Crash Analysis System (CAS) - New Zealand’s primary tool for capturing information on where, when and how road crashes occur.

Pam Hook writes about how the safe road system is used as a context for active citizenship in the NZ Transport Agency’s road safety education resources.

This paper summarises the thinking behind design for pedagogy that matters.
