MAIC helped establish CARRS-Q in 1996 through a joint venture with QUT to address the enormous human, economic and social costs resulting from road crashes.

A central component of MAIC’s road safety investment is the ongoing support of the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety Queensland (CARRS-Q) located at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).  CARRS-Q, through its focus on research, teaching and community education, has established an international reputation as a credible and respected entity in road safety.  In Queensland, CARRS-Q provides an independent evidence base which has contributed to a number of key road safety policy enhancements including introduction of an enhanced graduated licensing scheme, drug driving testing and motorcycle safety initiatives.

CARRS-Q undertakes world-class research in six main areas of road safety:

  • Intelligent Transport Systems
  • Occupational Safety
  • Regulation and Enforcement
  • Road Safety Infrastructure
  • School and Community Injury Prevention
  • Vulnerable Road Users
