State of Knowledge on Distracted Driving

The objective of this project is to prepare a “State of Knowledge” literature review report on the behavioral aspects of distracted driving with a focus on portable electronic device use. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) often prepares literature reviews on behavioral safety topics. These reviews are critical for updating knowledge of an issue, and they also serve as resources in traffic safety, including for other federal agencies, state governments, advocates, researchers, and the public. NHTSA has not published a “State of Knowledge” report on distracted driving since 2008. It is important that the updated review comprehensively scans the literature, obtains and compiles necessary documents, critically reviews documents, and objectively synthesizes the research – drawing conclusions that allow a solid understanding of the topic and the basis for sound policy decisions.
