ARSC conference 2018

Existing research and evaluation of the current Queensland Graduated Driver Licensing system indicates the number of crashes and crash related injuries of novice drivers is reducing. However, to date there has been minimal research into the locations of specific novice driver non-compliance and the rates at which offences occur. This research fills the gap by highlighting areas of compliance and non-compliance across Queensland. Through applied analysis, focusing on offences recorded between 1997 - 2017, this study highlights different aspects of driver compliance and serves as a tool for future policy considerations.
