He is actively engaged in knowledge transfer activities around integrating best practice in safety among practitioners, road agencies, local government and other road safety stakeholders. Jeremy has been influential on road safety policy and has been involved with the development of numerous strategies and action plans nationally.

Jeremy is currently the National Secretary and South Australian Chair of the Australasian College of Road Safety and has served on numerous task forces and committees in relation to road safety.

In 2017, Jeremy was invited to co-chair an inquiry into the National Road Safety Strategy 2011-2020. The other co-chair to the inquiry was Dr John Crozier from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and official advisers were Robert McInery, CEO of the international road assessment program and Mr Lauchlan McIntosh, CEO of the Global New Car Assessment Program.

CASR possesses unique insights on road safety from its crash investigation, vehicle testing and data analysis activities.
