To the Editor: I read with interest the research article by O’Connor and colleagues, which concluded that the medical and retrieval costs of road crashes in rural and remote northern Queensland represent “a considerable economic burden”.1 Although the authors noted that the broader Rural and Remote Road Safety Study aimed to also gain an understanding of the social costs of such crashes, they focused on the monetary costs in this report.
