Banning hand-held phone use while driving does not always work and can result in the more dangerous behaviour of concealed phone use while driving. Therefore, utilising technology reduce risk is an important area to explore. This study used a mixed methods design to explore drivers’ perceptions, as well as the effectiveness and usability, of applications designed to prevent mobile phone distracted driving.
