Study: Tailgaters wouldn't tailgate if not for those rotten queue-jumpers...

A new study conducted by the Queensland University of Technology's (QUT) Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety (CARRS-Q) has found that one-in two drivers are failing to keep a safe following distance - but those tailgaters say queue-jumpers are to blame. Tailgating has been identified as the leading cause of rear-end collisions - no surprise there - with QUT surveying more than 500 drivers on their perceptions of driving behaviour and their knowledge of safe following distance.

Petrol cars to dominate Australian market in 2030 - study

The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has published a study predicting that in 15 years time, petrol-powered vehicles will continue to dominate the Australian market. Despite the drive to adopt electric or electric-assisted vehicles to cut emissions and reliance on fossil fuels, the study suggests that in Australia, the number of battery-powered vehicles on local roads will continue to trail petrol cars in 2030.
