Risky Driving Behaviors and Safety Outcomes

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety is funding an in-depth analysis of risky driving behaviors and their relationship to crashes, near crashes, and crash-relevant conflicts, based on data collected under the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's "100-Car Study." The 100-Car Study used in-vehicle cameras and "black box" technology to observe the behavior of 100 drivers during a one-year period. For the AAA Foundation study, the researchers will perform additional analysis of the 100-Car database, to conduct a thorough analysis of various risky driving behaviors and their relationship to crashes, near crashes, and crash-relevant conflicts. Results will help increase knowledge regarding the relationship between various risky driving behaviors and crashes, and help inform future research and interventions aimed at reducing risky driving behaviors.
