Isolation has impacted on every aspect of our lives – how we live, how we work, our relationships and social interactions and our mental health.
The University of the Sunshine Coast is undertaking a survey on the influence that the pandemic is having on the frequency of driving, drinking, and drink-driving behaviours.

Those who are a licensed driver and aged 18 years and over are invited to participate in the research project through a 5-minute online survey. Check it out here.
It is expected that the research results will inform decision-makers within police and transport departments. This research is funded by the Road Safety Research Collaboration at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
The Chief Investigators are Natalie Watson Brown and Verity Truelove. The University of the Sunshine Coast was founded in 1996 and has supported more than 25,000 graduates to achieve their educational and career goals.
The research acknowledges that doing the survey may raise issues for the participants and identifies that Lifeline support services are available for anyone who may be needed help.
So perhaps get involved, offer your perspectives and help to understand just another piece of the pandemic experience.
