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. The centre was founded by well-known and respected Professor of Psychology Mary Sheehan, and is currently headed by Associate Professor Barry Watson.
CARRS-Q was established in 1996 as a joint venture initiative of the Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC) and Queensland University of Technology (QUT). The centre was created to address the enormous human, economic and social costs resulting from road crashes. The MAIC and QUT provide core funding for staff and research infrastructure. The centre also obtains major funding support through successful national competitive research grants and consultancies.
