Exploring Impaired Driving

This project will analyze existing driving data as well as newly collected alcohol and driving data to explore the relationship between driver characteristics and observed driving impairment. The project will occur in two parts with one component being conducted at the University of Iowa and the second part being conducted at Grinnell College. The Iowa component will involve pulling together the existing data sets, identifying common data elements that can be analyzed across studies, developing research questions, analyzing the data and reporting. This also includes plans to submit to the Transportation Research Board (TRB). The Grinnell component will involve collaboration with Professor Ryan Miller and his two students who will be conducting analyses on the same driving data sets focused on cannabis impairment. The role will be to support their independent analyses and publication of the data.
