Dale Harris Wins 'Best Paper by a New Researcher"

Posted on: 21 October 2015     Tags:

With a theme of “Taking Action Together”, this year’s Australasian Road Safety Conference took place on the Gold Coast in October 2015.  This is the largest road safety conference in Australasia with over 650 delegates attending, and more than 160 papers presented. The multi-disciplinary event featured representatives from all facets of road and transport safety including research, policing, teaching, practice and policy. Abley’s Dale Harris won the ‘Best Young Researcher’ award for her work on 'road safety risk prediction methodology for low volume rural roads'. Traditional risk assessment techniques rely on crash history which make it difficult to predict risk in low traffic volume areas. This groundbreaking research uses geospatial data and innovative techniques to identify road curvature risk, independent of road crash history.  The results of this new research have been shared with road controlling authorities and support road safety improvements. Dale's latest award reinforces Abley's position as a leader in road safety innovation.
