Developing technology-neutral road rules for driver distraction

The Australian Road Rules relating to driver distraction that regulate the use of specific technology devices are becoming quickly outdated. In this decision RIS, the NTC assessed four options to compare the current technology-based road rules with different technology-neutral approaches for regulating driver distraction, proposing a hybrid option to address the problem. This option is expected to provide the highest road safety benefits in terms of reducing the number of distraction-associated road crashes.
