ONE in four peo­ple killed in ve­hi­cles on Queens­land roads aren’t wear­ing seat­belts. The shock­ing statis­tic has shocked Trans­port and Main Roads Min­is­ter Mark Bai­ley, who said it "al­most beg­gars be­lief." About eight per cent of Queens­lan­ders don’t buckle up, with the prob­lem par­tic­u­larly preva­lent in re­gional ar­eas in­clud­ing the South West Po­lice Dis­trict.

A fo­rum aimed at find­ing ways to get peo­ple to buckle up is be­ing held in Townsville, and will bring to­gether road safety ex­perts and other stake­hold­ers.
