MEDIA ALERT: ANCAP to visit Mt Cotton to share the safer vehicles message with Queensland

Australasia’s leading independent vehicle safety advocate and consumer test organisation, ANCAP, will visit the Mt Cotton Driver Training Facility on Monday (12 September 2016) to profile the importance of newer, safer vehicles in Queensland.

The visit coincides with a visit to Brisbane by the ANCAP Board of Directors and is part of ANCAP’s broader “What’s your ANCAP?” public education campaign which aims to raise awareness of ANCAP safety ratings and promote the benefits of safer vehicles across all States and Territories.

“We’re heading to Brisbane on Monday to remind Queenslanders of the importance of safer vehicles and will be calling on them to check the ANCAP safety rating of their current or prospective new car,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, James Goodwin.

“The latest data is showing that while there are fewer older cars on the road, they are involved in the most fatal crashes. With the number of Queenslanders dying on our roads increasing rather than decreasing, we need to do all we can to get the community into the safest cars possible,” said Mr Goodwin.

The Queensland Government together with the RACQ are long-standing members of ANCAP.

“Together with our Queensland members, we’re working hard in pursuing the shared vision to eliminate road trauma through safer vehicles,” ANCAP Chair, Ms Wendy Machin said.

Media are invited to attend the Mt Cotton facility. ANCAP Chair, Ms Wendy Machin, and Chief Executive Officer, Mr James Goodwin will be available for interview. Crash test vision and media assets will be made available.
