For researchers or other persons interested in what areas CARS has been active in in the past, the links below provide access to some of the publicity newsclips over the years. This is only a sample as there were too many to include them all. We also collected newsclips related to other road safety matters, and these are arranged in topic order in hard copy form in folders, should anyone have a genuine need to peruse them. Newsclips have now stopped being collected by us as research can now be done online in newspaper publisher's archives. The emphasis on CARS' direction has changed over the years. When we started off it was decided that CARS would not only be there to help people pick up the pieces, but to try and prevent road trauma happening to other people. So we were proactive as well as reactive. RBT, a proven life-saver, had been introduced in other states but not in Queensland due to the influence of the liquor lobby. So we were heavily involved in countering this lobbying, and finally RBT was introduced. Hence the media portrayed us as a lobby group. The Taxation Office has since set requirements for organisations that to be recognised as a charity lobbying is not be the main object of an organisation, but only be incidental to its activities. Therefore our emphasis is now on being more of a victim support group, but this still involves pursuing the interests of victims in a proactive way should the need arise.
