  • Abstract:
    Previous studies have shown that event-triggered, video-based interventions have the potential to improve driving safety among young drivers. Nine states including Iowa have some type of restricted driving license that allows drivers younger than 16 to independently operate motor vehicles. While these license types typically restrict the kind of driving permitted, little is known about how these younger drivers compare to traditional 16-year-old drivers in terms of risky driving behaviors. This project examined the effects of age, experience, and video-based feedback on the rate of unsafe driving events captured on video event recorders for 90 newly licensed teen drivers. Half the participants received feedback and the other half were assigned to a control (no feedback) condition. The results show that young drivers who received feedback, regardless of their age or level of driving experience, had lower rates of unsafe driving events relative to the control group. Young drivers in the control condition with 4 months or more of experience behind the wheel before obtaining their intermediate license had fewer unsafe driving events than drivers without that experience. The results of this study indicate that video-based feedback could have safety benefits for young drivers.
