Comparison Of Self-Declared Mobile Use While Driving In Canada, The United States, And Europe
Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF).
2018 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Existing literature on distracted driving includes very little research about the differences in self-reported prevalence worldwide. The current research aims to increase the available knowledge by comparing rates of various self-reported distracted driving behaviours from three different regions (Canada, the United States, and Europe). Self-declared mobile use (talking on a hand-held mobile, sending a text message or email), personal acceptability and attitudes towards mobile use while driving were measured as part of the E-Survey of Road users’ Attitudes (ESRA1) conducted in 25 countries during 2015-2016. The descriptive analysis compared rates of drivers’ mobile use behaviours, opinions, and attitudes by region. Two multivariate models predicting self-declared talking on a hand-held phone while driving, and self-declared sending of a text message or email while driving, were also estimated. This presentation will provide an overview of results from this research and place the findings in a broader context of distracted driving in particular and road safety in general, with special attention to differences between regions.
