RECOMMENDATIONS FOR RESEARCH ON UNSAFE TARGET DRIVING BEHAVIORS AND SAFE DRIVING CONFORMANCE COUNTERMEASURE APPROACHES

The report presents the research requirements for the development of a safe driving conformance program. The information needs and current state of knowledge with respect to a safe driving conformance program were presented in an earlier report. The development of such a program requires information in two major areas: target driving behaviors and countermeasures. The research requirements presented are designed to complete the information requirements identified in the previous report for developing, testing, and implementing innovative safe driving conformance initiatives. The research program recommended consists of seven research modules, each dealing with a separate area of inquiry defined by similarity of information content and efficiency of accomplishment within a single research project. Research modules are presented for the areas of: Target Driving Behaviors; Citizen Participation; Detection; Drivers and Risk Taking; Traffic Law System; Social Conformance Countermeasures; and Experimental Studies.
