CAMS members to help with study of driving on public roads and motor sport
- 7th February 2017, 10:08pm
The Australian Institute for Motor Sport Safety (AIMSS) is asking CAMS members for assistance to understand how driver training and motor sport involvement relate to driving on public roads.
AIMSS is embarking on a series of research projects, one of which has the potential for a significant impact on those involved in the sport.
Chairman of AIMSS, Garry Connelly, says a survey that has been distributed to CAMS members is seeking to find if there is a link between those involved in motor sport and driving safely on public roads.
"For years, certain academics have argued that those who have been involved in motor sport (even as spectators) or those who have had professional advanced driver training, are worse drivers than those who have not," Connelly said.
"This independent online survey seeks to determine if people who participate in motor sport, or have undergone professional advanced driver training, have less (or more) likelihood of being involved in crashes on public roads."
This survey is partnering with Dr Kristi Heesch from the School of Public Health and Social Work at Queensland University of Technology to gather information that can inform these efforts.
It is essential that as many people as possible complete the survey to achieve the most accurate result. AIMSS also hopes that motor sport participants will encourage a wide circle of friends and co-workers not involved or exposed to motor sport to spend their time completing the survey.
The survey will be distributed to all CAMS members above 18 years, and is arguably one of the most important surveys conducted with Australian motor sport participants, whilst having the potential to provide benefits to CAMS members.*
