This project will identify how current Indigenous road safety initiatives can be improved, and develop a documented model of best practice for delivering road safety programs to Indigenous communities across Australia.
Professor Barry Watson, Director of the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety at the Queensland University of Technology (CARRS-Q) was awarded a 2009 Indigenous Road Safety Grant of $29,720 from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government to conduct this project. The CARRS-Q will develop a national protocol for the development and delivery of Indigenous road safety programs to Indigenous communities across Australia, this is in collaboration with the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, and the Woorabinda Community.
The research team will present a report on its findings to the 5th Indigenous Road Safety Forum in October 2010. A final report will be provided to the department in January 2011.
