Investigating Technology-based Countermeasures for Cell-phone Use while Driving
Recent reviews by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety noted that technology-based countermeasures such as cellphone blocking apps offer a promising approach to reducing distracted driving. However, acceptance and use of such apps remain low, especially among driving populations most prone to distraction. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety is working with researchers at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute to help determine how to increase the use of technology-based countermeasures to combat distracted driving.
