what results in a gpm
What results in a GPM?

Demand for guidelines or materials

Scientific evidence of a problem and a solution


3 new items
3 New items

Distracted Driving Resource

Heavy Vehicle Guidelines

Pedestrian Good Practice Manual

what is driver distraction
What is driver distraction?

Inattention that results from a trigger diverting a driver\'s attention away from "primary" task (driving) towards a "secondary" task (non driving)

Driver distraction is one form of a broader issue of driver inattention

mobile phone use
Mobile phone use

Exponential ownership over the last decade

Demand for growth likely to be driven by LMIC market

Highest use among young people

Rapid growth in text messaging services

conclusions from research
Conclusions from research

Increasing and broad problem of growth of telematics

Detrimental effect on driving behaviour

Approx increase of 4 in crash risk

Hands-free no different crash risk to hand-held

Need for countries to begin to collect data on the problem and to evaluate interventions put into place.

impact upon driving behaviour
Impact upon driving behaviour

Increased reaction time (especially braking time)

Lane deviation

Impaired ability to maintain appropriate speed

Shorter following distances

Decreased awareness of road safety situation

hand held vs hands free
Hand-held vs hands-free

No evidence to suggest that hands-free phones are safer in terms of driving performance

Cognitive distraction seems to have the most impact upon driving behaviour

Compensatory behaviour

other road users
Other road users?

Likely to be a potential issue among motorcyclists and pedestrians, where VRUs are most affected and where mobile phone use is growing

Some research on cognitive distraction among pedestrians suggest increased risk


Legislation and enforcement

Employer policies

Data collection policies

Public awareness

Technological solutions

Need for evidence

heavy vehicles
Heavy Vehicles

Need for international resource, not just regional

Funding – around $350,000
