ROAD ACCIDENT PREVENTION RESEARCH UNIT (ROADWATCH), DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH, UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA ANNUAL REPORT, 1998

The Road Accident Prevention Research Unit, also known as ROADWATCH, was established in March 1989 in the Department of Public Health, The University of Western Australia. It is the only research unit in Western Australia dedicated to road traffic research. Through its location in the Department of Public Health, ROADWATCH fulfills both research and academic functions within the University and the wider community, raising the level of awareness within academia about road trauma as a public health concern, and forging links with other university, government, and community groups concerned with road safety. The primary aim of the Unit is to conduct research directed towards minimizing the frequency and consequences of road traffic crashes in Western Australia. The major areas of activity for the unit are: the development, use and maintenance of the Road Injury Database; Aboriginal involvement in road traffic crashes; costs and long term outcomes of injuries; and the evaluation of road safety policy, programs and countermeasures. This report details the activities of the Unit for 1998.
