The Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety

The Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q) is one of the leading centres in Australia dedicated to research, education and outreach activities in road safety, and is a vital player in the international pursuit of road safety.
CARRS-Q undertakes research into road safety and injury prevention in order to address the enormous human, economic and social costs resulting from road crashes.  The Centre has a commitment to achieve real and long-term results by providing research based information to policy makers and the community.  It has some valuable curriculum based material.
Projects in this theme relate to both road safety and more generic injury prevention issues.They may focus on a range of topics from exploring particular behaviours that may reduce safety, to targeted school and media interventions.
