The crash investigation alliance – a Gold Coast based shared responsibility influencing safe roads, safe speeds and safe people
Submission Date: 2019
The Crash Investigation Alliance (CIA) is localised shared responsibility between the City of Gold Coast (the City) and Queensland Police Service (QPS). The CIA combines its road safety, traffic engineering, fatal crash investigation and enforcement resources to investigate fatal and serious injury (FSI), separate to ongoing QPS investigations. Benefits of the CIA include escalation of crash treatment selection processes, localised post-crash enforcement strategies and reporting to stakeholders for sites where a FSI crash has occurred. This paper aims to describe the CIA’s crash investigation process, post-crash strategies and summarise the investigations undertaken since its inception in August 2017.
