Grassroots programs aimed at protecting Queenslanders on our roads were named winners of the 2017 Queensland Road Safety Awards announced in Bundaberg today (August 23).
The awards are run by QUT's Centre for Accident Research & Road Safety - Queensland (CARRS-Q), in conjunction with RACQ and supported by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, Queensland Police Service and the Motor Accident Insurance Commission.
CARRS-Q director Professor Narelle Haworth said the biennial awards recognised and honoured the outstanding efforts of individuals and groups who had initiated projects or programs to improve safety on Queensland roads.
“The winners and highly-commended recipients have provided practical and positive road safety initiatives aimed at reducing road trauma,” Professor Haworth said.
The 2017 Queensland Road Safety Award winners are:
Susie Whitehead Memorial Rest Area - Road Accident Action Group (Mackay)
The Road Accident Action Group (RAAG) has worked tirelessly to complete the Susie Whitehead Memorial Rest Area. This project was aimed at reducing fatigue related road accidents on the Peak Downs Highway by providing new, and upgrading existing rest areas, with aesthetically pleasing shade shelters, and re-naming the rest area. This completes a three-year project of upgrading the Nebo Heavy Vehicle and Motorist Rest Areas.
Local Government Award
Gold Coast Seniors Safe Travel Guide - The City of Gold Coast
The aim of this project was to add to the initiatives provided by the City of Gold Coast that ensure their seniors travel around the region safely. This program supports the city’s Free Seniors Travel initiative and is directly linked to the city’s Accessible and Inclusive Action Plan and the Gold Coast Road Safety Plan 2015–2020.
Survive Your Drive - Queensland Police Service (Cairns)
Aimed at one of the most vulnerable groups, 15-25 year olds, this program educates young people about what happens when things go wrong on the road and challenges bad driving behaviour when in a vehicle. The initiative was a new concept and a direct relationship between the Queensland Police Service and Youth Justice to actively engage young offenders. The program continues to evolve and has now spread into schools and is incorporated within a Motor Vehicle Offending Program.
State Government Award
The Golden Tickets Project - Queensland Police Service (Townsville)
This initiative aligns with the Safer Roads Safer Queensland: Queensland Road Safety Strategy 2015-2021, as it aims to change the culture and attitude people have to road safety by challenging pre-conceptions of the enforcement of road safety. Driver distraction and fatigue are a growing concern in Queensland. Rewarding drivers for taking breaks is encouraging drivers to make what at the time may be an unconscious decision. This initiative has the potential to be expanded statewide and could be implemented and enforced by multiple agencies. It is the belief of the Golden Ticket Project that every road user is worthy of encouragement and reward.
Highly commended awards were presented to:
