There’s an abundance of research on the effects of distraction on highway safety, making it challenging to maintain proper context with past findings. And new work is broadening our understanding of distraction by examining questions such as why drivers feel so compelled to engage in distracting activities behind the wheel and how the effects of distraction vary by age and other factors. Experts will help you understand how to accurately interpret research results and explore the latest science of distracted driving.
