Our campaign seeks to reduce road toll, hospitalisations and traumatic brain injury caused by traffic crashes.  Reducing road crashes, reduces the cost on community services, hospitals and health facilities, families and the wider community.

WHY WE ARE NEEDED:

  •   Queensland Road Death Toll for 2015 - 243
  •   Queensland hospitalised casualties for 2013 - 6,936
  •   Each year more than 11,000 Queenslanders are expected to acquire a brain injury.
  •   Of them 4,000 develop a serious disability.
  •   Motor vehicle crashes will be responsible for 70% of traumatic brain injury.
  •   Of this number 70% will involve young people aged between 16-24 yrs.
  •   2% of the Australian population is estimated to have developed a brain injury related to the effects of alcohol and/or drug abuse.

WHAT WE DO TO HELP

Make it Home Safely Inc run high school education programs, community events and competitions to:

  •   Raise the awareness of the long term impact of traumatic head injury
  •   Influence driver and passenger attitude and behaviour
  •   Empowers young people to make choices, plans, messages and commitments to ensure they and their friends make it home safely every time.

The project was developed through $15,000 grant funding to implement the project with 1,000 students.  More is needed to extend our influence with young drivers on our Queensland roads.
