Risk and regret: Identifying modifiable factors that predict drink driving and texting while driving among young adult drivers in the ACT region

Research output: Book/ReportReports

Abstract

In Australia, young drivers are overrepresented in road crashes and fatalities, with the 15- 24 year old age group accounting for 20% of all road deaths (AIHW, 2015). The ACT Road Strategy 2011-2020 (ACT Government, 2011) reported alcohol use and driver distraction, such as mobile phone use, as the major contributors to road accidents and fatalities. Therefore, addressing the risky driving behaviours of drink driving and driver distraction (e.g., texting while driving) among younger drivers is important.
