Hume City Council is responsible for the management of almost 1,357km of local roads within Hume. We work continually with the Victorian Government and the community to help improve the safety of all road users. We do this through a combination of community consultation and education on traffic management works including roundabouts, traffic signals and line marking.

Council has an extensive reseal, resheet and reconstruction program for local roads, based on a Pavement Management System, which will ensure the long-term viability of road assets in Hume City.

The Hume Road Management Plan has been developed in accordance with the Road Management Act 2004. It defines which public roads will be maintained and sets the standards and levels of service for the management and maintenance of assets within the road reserve, subject to the available Council funds.

The Plan is a key component of the asset management framework established by the Hume City Council's Asset Management Strategy. For further information about the Hume Road Management Plan contact us.

Council supports and delivers a number of road safety programs to improve driver’s skills and behaviour.

TAC L2P Program

The TAC L2P Program assists learners between 16 and 21 years of age, who do not have access to a supervising driver or vehicle, to gain the driving experience required to apply for a probationary licence.

The TAC L2P program is currently looking for new volunteer mentor drivers to assist young people to gain their licence. Mentors receive training before being matched with a young learner driver facing significant barriers to gaining the required 120 hours on the road experience. Learner drivers participate in up to seven professional lessons before getting in one of the three available four-star ANCAP safety-rated vehicles with their volunteer mentor driver. 

Visit the Hume Whittlesea LLEN to apply to become a volunteer

Becoming a mentor gives you the ability to assist a young person become a good driver and gain their licence, increase road safety in Hume, participate in a range of free training sessions and meet new people in the process. Please contact the L2P Coordinators on 9309 7533 or email for more information or to register as a mentor.


The Fit2Drive workshop is a half-day session conducted in schools with all students at Year 11 level, supporting them to make good decisions when faced with risky driving situations, both as passengers, and in future driving practice.

The Fit2Drive workshop is free for all secondary schools across Hume City. To book in your Fit2Drive session please call 9205 2200

Driver Safety

VicRoads provides a range of initiatives for drivers as well as tips and resources to help make you a safer driver. The information can be found on the VicRoads website.

Stop Sneak Theft

Stop Sneak Theft is an initiative funded by the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council (NMVTRC) aimed at reducing the theft of vehicles that occur through residential burglaries in order to access car keys.

This initiative emphasises to vehicle owners the importance of safeguarding car keys and securing their home.

The Facts are that:

  • 7 in 10 stolen cars are taken with the vehicle’s own keys.
  • 3 in 4 are stolen from the home or the street immediately outside the home.
  • 1 in 4 reported burglaries keys are the only property stolen in burglaries in which a vehicle is taken.
  • Offenders will sneak into homes by taking advantage of unlocked doors and windows.
  • Offenders look for keys left in easily accessible places such as on a key hook or in a bowl near the door.
  • Often the homeowner is present, but unaware of the thief entering the home. For this reason, we use the term ‘sneak thefts’ to describe these types of offences.
  • In most cases, thieves will actively avoid coming into contact with the homeowner.
  • In fact, in 95 per cent of incidents there is no confrontation with the homeowner.

How to prevent sneak theft
Car theft is preventable and there are simple steps motorists can take to reduce their risk.

POP keys out of sight

LOCK all doors and windows and make sure everyone in the family is doing the same.

STOP sneak theft.
