Developing contemporary driving risk assessment tools to improve fleet safety (2008 - 2012)

The research project aims to develop a battery of effective driving measurement tools  to gain a better understanding of the factors associated with vehicle-related injuries and fatalities within Australian fleet settings e.g., speeding, fatigue, time-pressure.

The project will have a significant impact on road safety through the development of effective driving risk measurement scales that will inform the implementation of fleet interventions designed to identify and reduce high risk fleet driving behaviours.

The project is the first national or international study of its kind, and could potentially make a significant contribution to Australian business effectiveness, as well as reduce the emotional and physical burden of road crashes. 

This research is supported by an ARC Linkage grant and QFleet.
