About the scholarship
The project is funded by the Campervan & Motorhome Club of Australia Limited (CMCA) and QUT’s Faculty of Health. The RV (Recreational Vehicle) industry is booming with strong vehicle growth rates in Australia. RVs include motorhomes, campervans, caravans, bus/coaches, fifth-wheelers, slide-on and camper trailers. This project seeks to understand the characteristics of RV road users and factors that contribute to their involvement in incidents, crashes and near-misses. With such understanding, the project will aim to devise and evaluate communication strategies for their effectiveness in improving road safety for RV road users. The research will draw upon existing data (crash data) as well as in-depth qualitative methods (focus groups/interviews) and quantitative surveys to build a foundation of knowledge.
