The economic, medical and social costs of road traffic crashes in rural north Queensland: a 5-year multi-phase study
Veitch, Craig, Sheehan, Mary C., Turner, Richard, Siskind, Victor, & Pashen, Dennis (2005) The economic, medical and social costs of road traffic crashes in rural north Queensland: a 5-year multi-phase study. In 8th National Rural Health Conference, 10-13th March, 2005, Alice Springs, Northern Territory.
In Queensland in the year 2000, for example, the risk of dying (per capita) in a rural versus urban crash was 4.2 times higher, with resulting costs 2-3 times higher in rural areas compared to urban areas. In response, the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q) at Queensland University of Technology and James Cook University have designed a program of research to reduce the incidence and economic, medical and social costs of road crashes in Northern Queensland through the development and implementation of tailored road safety interventions.
