Matching Countermeasures to Driver Types and Speeding Behaviors

Speeding related crashes continue to be a serious problem. For over a decade, there has been little change in the proportion of speed-related fatal crashes. Recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) sponsored research is providing important new insights into speeding behavior as it reveals some of the complexity of this pervasive and multi-faceted traffic safety problem. Given this complexity, it is evident that different countermeasures may be better suited to address different speeding types/patterns. For this project, NHTSA will conduct a survey of licensed drivers in a State (State to be determined) to further explore typologies of driver speeding types developed in our "Motivations for Speeding" and "2011 National Survey of Speeding Attitudes and Behavior" projects with a focus on finding appropriate countermeasures for various speeder types. This project will collect information on the attitudes and experiences of the drivers surveyed with regard to speeding countermeasures, as well as actual driving records, and match countermeasures with driver types. One objective of this project is to further examine the driver speeding typologies from the two previous studies. Each of the typologies provides a different way of defining speeder types. A second objective of this project is the exploration of appropriate speeding countermeasures for various driver speeding types and roadways. Based on this analysis, recommendations for the most appropriate speeding countermeasures for various driver types will be produced. The third objective of this project is to match actual driver records with individual survey responses in order to compare patterns of actual driving violations with speeding types and other responses, and to validate self-report information found in the survey. This information will then be used to design countermeasure approaches for future evaluation.
