Queensland’s worst roads for car crashes revealed
New data has revealed the state’s worst roads for car crashes.
Insurance giant AAMI analysed data from 360,000 accident claims around the country in the year to June 30 and found that the Bruce Highway at Caboolture was Queensland’s worst road for car crashes.
Gympie Road in Chermside, Morayfield Road, Ipswich Road at Annerley and Mains Road in Sunnybank were next on the list.
Queensland is also the country’s worst state for collisions.
RACQ’s manager of corporate Affairs, Lucinda Ross, said the figures were disturbing.
“I don’t think there’d be too many surprises on that list for Brisbane drivers,” she told Scott Emerson.
She said the common theme for the roads on the list were they were all “high volume” roads, they were often congested, as well as interceptions and mergers.
She said the fatality figures were “shocking”.
“This is a wake-up call, this is an opportunity to reflect on our own driving.”
