Paper on road safety

The Mathematical Science group has a strong track record of applying statistics methods to improve and study road safety.  Recently, our Julian Stander joined forces with excellent colleagues in the School of Psychology
to publish a paper in the journal Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour entitled “Evaluating the effectiveness of a young driver-education intervention: Learn2Live”.  This paper reports that
a fear-based road safety intervention had an effect on decreasing young drivers’ attitudes towards risky driving and that young drivers preferred a peer-led educational road safety intervention experience, rather than
an adult-led intervention experience.
