Benchmarking distracted driving against other key risky driving behaviours
Submission Date: 2019
Speeding, drink driving, drug driving, distracted driving, and fatigued driving are the most significant behavioural contributors to road trauma worldwide, yet little is known about the differences in crash risks and prevalence between each of these behaviours. This study invited international road safety experts to be part of a semi-quantitative risk assessment process considering the perceived crash risk associated with these behaviours, population factors, group exposure, and individual exposure. From this, insights into the relative importance of these behaviours were obtained.
