FatigueQ: Is there any research currently being undertaken to examine the problem of driver fatigue?
The Travelsafe Committee of the 51st Legislative Assembly is inquiring into crashes involving driver and rider fatigue in Queensland. During the inquiry, the committee will examine and report on:
- The involvement of driver and rider fatigue as a factor in road crashes in Queensland;
- the causes and symptoms of this fatigue; and
- legislative, enforcement, educational and other measures to reduce the incidence of fatigue-related crashes.
The Queensland Police Service forwarded a submission to the Travelsafe Committee with recommendations on how we can reduce the incidence of fatigue related crashes on Queensland roads. This submission, along with various other documents relating to the inquiry can be accessed via the Parliamentary Travelsafe Committee Internet website at the following address: www.parliament.qld.gov.au/TSAFE
