Citizens’ Taskforce Events 2015

A Citizens' Taskforce made up of 25 randomly recruited Queenslanders was invited to consider if incentives could help improve driver safety, including for young people.

The group included young drivers, parents of young drivers, experienced drivers and people who have commercial driving experience. They came from the greater Brisbane area, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Bundaberg, Mackay, Rockhampton, Cairns and Townsville.

The Citizens’ Taskforce examined whether incentives could help to improve driver behaviour and reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured on our roads every year. Taskforce members heard from a range of experts and submissions received from the public were also considered by the group.
