Put a First Aid Kit in your car

Put a First Aid Kit in your car

Driving is a risky and complex task and something that many South Australians do every day. We take all sorts of measures to stay safe on the road, and one of those can be carrying a first aid kit in your car.

A first aid kit can help you to provide some immediate treatment or care following a road crash until emergency services arrive.

There are many different types of first aid kits on the market, including kits made specifically for storage in vehicles. Whichever kit you choose, make sure it’s readily accessible and adequately stocked.

The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) encourages all motorists to drive carefully and follow the road rules - and you can go the extra mile with your safety, by storing a first aid kit in your car.

Safety ratings vital

Safety ratings vital

The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) ensures there is a ratings system which helps you to make safer vehicle choices. 

ANCAP provides independent vehicle safety information through the publication of ANCAP safety ratings.  ANCAP safety ratings take into account the level of occupant and pedestrian protection provided by new cars through the conduct of physical crash tests and the assessment of collision avoidance technologies.

In each of the physical tests, dummies are used to scientifically measure the various forces on occupants in the crash.

The data gathered is then assessed in conjunction with a physical assessment of the vehicle, and a score determined for each test.

In addition, vehicles must be fitted with certain safety features and safety assist technologies. These requirements are then assessed alongside the physical crash test scores with an overall score translated into an ANCAP safety rating of between 1 to 5 stars.

The more stars, the better the vehicle performed in ANCAP tests. To achieve the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating, a vehicle must achieve the highest standards in all tests and feature advanced safety assist technologies.

Making a claim

Making a claim

To make a CTP claim, you will need to comply with the legal claim notification requirements and complete an Approved Injury Claim form, including a Prescribed Authority, provided by Allianz. The Injury Claim Form will require specific crash information and is designed to assist Allianz in making an early decision on your access to treatment.

Where Allianz obtains information using the Prescribed Authority, a copy of that information will be provided to you. Once you have returned the completed Injury Claim Form and Prescribed Authority to Allianz, a claims consultant will contact you to discuss your claim.

MAC is committed to supporting early access to reasonable and necessary treatment to optimize your recovery from your injury, and providing a properly completed Approved Injury Claim Form and Prescribed Authority will assist MAC to achieve this goal.
