Using the Positive Culture Framework to Reduce Distracted Driving in Idaho

The primary objectives of this research is to develop a better understanding of the attitudes and beliefs associated with distracted driving in Idaho, and to develop resources to change these attitudes and beliefs including media messages and workplace resources. A workplace toolkit will be developed to assist in combatting distracted driving that can be shared with Idaho businesses. The toolkit will include sample policies, materials to educate employees about distracted driving and supportive media. It will be placed on a website and down loaded electronically. All this will be developed using the Positive Culture Framework which is a framework for improving health and safety.
