Driver knowledge about road fatalities in Australia
Fleiter, Judy & Watson, Barry C. (2010) Driver knowledge about road fatalities in Australia. In 2010 Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference, 31 August - 3 September 2010, National Convention Centre, Canberra. (Unpublished)
The term “road toll” quantifies road deaths and attracts media attention, particularly during Easter/Christmas holiday periods. Since the media focuses considerable attention on this issue, we might expect that this would translate into awareness among drivers the number of people killed, which in turn, would hopefully encourage safer driving. Road safety professionals are cognisant of road toll trends but there is little information available to indicate awareness of road fatalities among the general population. This research investigated awareness of fatalities on Queensland and Australian roads among Queensland drivers.
