Resources and Tools to Reduce Multi-Risk Driving Behaviors

There is growing recognition that drivers involved in fatal crashes are often engaged in multiple risky behaviors – not wearing a seat belt, speeding, and driving impaired. Research has established associations between impulsivity and multiple risky driving behaviors. While the association between impulsivity and various risky driving behaviors is established in the literature, there is limited understanding about how to address impulsivity and the underlying beliefs and behaviors of individuals engaging in multiple risky driving behaviors. This research seeks to address this gap by creating and testing an intervention designed to address traffic impulsivity to improve driver behaviors.
