Can we explain attention-related errors while driving?

Driver inattention is one of the main causes of road crashes. Factors that result in drivers’ attention-related errors, especially from the perspective of driver characteristics, have not been systematically investigated. This study conducted a questionnaire survey and investigated the inter-relationship between driver characteristics and their attention-related errors. Results indicated that (1) driving experience decreases attention-related errors while driving; (2) a higher frequency of driving violations, high disinhibition, and high susceptibility to involuntary distraction are associated with frequent attention-related errors. The findings shed light on the direction of countermeasures to reduce distracted driving and attention-related errors.
