Project summary

Funding has been awarded to Nottingham Trent University who will research and develop a novel training intervention designed to improve driver safety. The project will test training aimed at improving driver safety, through the enhancement of driver attention and skill, to see what the effects are. Subsequent driving behaviour will be tested in the laboratory and on the road. Based on the results, the aim is for the essential elements of the research to be developed into a short and focussed intervention for drivers.
