Understanding driving challenges and engagement opportunities to improve local driving knowledge of newly arrived international drivers and migrants
Submission Date: 2019
There is strong public opinion regarding tourists and international drivers posing a high risk on South Australian (SA) roads. While there is little information and publicly available data about international drivers’ involvement in SA crashes, there are experiences, stories and anecdotes that indicate road safety is an issue for them due to their limited local knowledge. International drivers settling in SA were surveyed to understand their pain points, challenges and interests after driving on the state’s roads. The study investigates how they prepared to face the roads in SA, what are their most stressful situations and their recommendations for others.
