You may have noticed (or completely missed) that CAMS recently sent members a request to participate in a survey. Road safety has improved a lot over the years in part from better car design, better roads and arguably through speed reduction strategies. This improvement has tapered off (and in some states become worse) and if road safety is to improve it is probably going to be through the third aspect of driving – the driver.
The Australian Institute for Motor Sport Safety (AIMSS) needs your help to understand how driver training and motor sport involvement relate to driving on public roads.
As per the CAMS email; AIMSS are asking people of all walks of life to complete a short survey and answer questions about their driver training and motor sport experiences, as well as their attitudes and experiences while driving on public roads.
The survey is partnering with Dr Kristi Heesch from the School of Public Health and Social Work at Queensland University of Technology to gather information that can inform these efforts.
This survey could be one of the most important conducted with Australian motor sport participants in recent years and has the potential to provide benefits to all road users, and with a large dash of luck, remove some of the stigma associated with motor sport the mainstream media seems to be fixated on.
There is also the option to also go into the draw to win one of five $500 Visa Eftpos gift cards!
If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Dr Kristi Heesch, Senior Lecturer at QUT via the contact details provided in the link above.
