Research proposal to reduce the crash involvement of taxis in Queensland: Development of Driving Safety Resources and Further Analyses (2016 - in progress)


Following on from the completion of the initial MAIC funded project Reducing the crash involvement of taxis in Queensland: Situational Analysis and Crash and Exposure Analyses, it was discussed and agreed between MAIC, CARRS-Q and Taxi Council Queensland that opportunities exist for further research to expand upon the results and conclusions obtained from both Stages 1 and 2 of the above project.

The overall aim of this project is to extend the research aimed at reducing the crash involvement of taxis in Queensland by addressing a number of key issues identified in the earlier project.

To achieve this aim there are two main objectives:

  1. Develop resources such as a Taxi Industry Driving Safety Guide relevant and applicable to the Queensland taxi industry; and
  2. Conduct further in-depth analyses of Queensland taxi crash data particularly investigating the incidents involving pedestrians and taxi crashes of an occupied versus unoccupied nature.


This research is supported by a grant from the Motor Accident Insurance Commission.
