Crash Index 2021

Is your suburb featured?

TIED 5th

Gympie Road, Aspley

The Aspley stretch of Gympie Road moves up a spot from last year – a jump that may not surprise those who frequent this busy, arterial road.

TIED 5th

Logan Road, Mount Gravatt

Logan Road is a familiar face on our Crash Index, but there’s reason for optimism –it’s dropped three spots from its 2020 runner-up position. Though, still practise caution here, especially near the Creek Road intersection.


Ipswich Road, Annerley

What comes to mind when you think of Annerley? Op shops? Taco Bell? You might want to add road incidents to that list – Ipswich Road holds 4th place on our Crash Index.


Morayfield Road, Morayfield

Morayfield Road also maintains its 3rd spot this year. Stay cautious when you’re transiting through the area or heading to Bite Markets for the day.


Gympie Road, Chermside

Gympie Road’s peak hour traffic is infamous in Brissie – that’s why this stretch frequently tops our lists, even taking the crash hotspot crown in 2020. This year, it falls to 2nd place.


Bruce Highway, Caboolture

It’s been a dramatic year for the Bruce Highway – in the span of 12 months, it sped up the ranks from #10 to Brisbane’s #1 crash hotspot! Gympie Road was reigning champion for three consecutive years, so stealing the crown is quite a feat.

Afternoons on Bruce Highway are especially risky. According to our claims data, 33% of our crashes occur at this time. As for the worst days, Sunday takes the cake.

Lucky you're with AAMI

QLD Car Insurance

In Queensland, Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance is attached to the registration of your vehicle and covers car accident-related injury costs for which you may be liable. Once that’s sorted, you should consider coverage for damage to cars and property, with Third Party Property Damage or Comprehensive Car Insurance.

What’s the most common accident type?

Watch out for the car in front of you! Nose-to-tail collisions are the most common crash type in all our top hotspots, apart from Hobart and Darwin.

Most of Hobart’s claims are for accidental damage to parked cars.

And if you’re in Darwin, carpark dings, failure to give way and nose to tail accidents are equally common.

Who is most likely to crash?

Men are most likely to make a claim for a crash in all our top hotspots, apart from Hobart, and Darwin, where women take the cake. Sydneysiders of all genders are equally represented in our crash claims.

People aged between 35-49 are also most likely to make a claim, nation-wide.
