Distracted driving is a behavior dangerous to drivers, passengers, and non-occupants alike. Distraction is a specific type of inattention that occurs when drivers divert their attention from the driving task to focus on some other activity instead. Of those people killed in distraction-affected crashes, 408 occurred in crashes in which at least one of the drivers was using a cell phone (13% of fatalities in distraction-affected crashes) at the time of the crash. Use of a cell phone includes talking/listening to a cell phone, dialing/texting a cell phone, or other cell-phone-related activities. In keeping with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's distraction plan (Overview of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Driver Distraction Program, April 2010, DOT HS 811 299), the agency continues to refine collection of information about the role of distracted driving in police-reported crashes. This book examines data gathered on specific distracting activities to support the development of safety countermeasures and to conduct improved data analysis.

A Practical Resource for Understanding, Preventing, and Managing Driver Distraction It is estimated that up to 23 percent of crashes and near-crashes are caused by driver distraction, and these figures will likely increase as more and more distractions, both inside and outside the vehicle, compete for driver attention. Driver Distraction: Theory, Effects, and Mitigation gives a comprehensive overview of this issue, outlining the underlying theory of distraction, its effects on driving performance and safety, strategies for mitigating its effects, and directions for future research. It also brings together the wide array of literature on the topic into one, all-inclusive volume. Includes Recommendations for Managing Distractions in the Technological Age This comprehensive volume reviews the full range of distracting activities that occur while driving, and available ergonomic methods, guidelines, and checklists for the measurement and mitigation of driver distraction. It also recommends ways to manage distraction through enhanced data collection and analysis, driver education and training, driver licensing, legislation and enforcement, vehicle design, road design, company policies, and future research. Beneficial for a broad audience, including: Vehicle manufacturers Road transport authorities and safety agencies Traffic and transport engineers Automotive equipment manufacturers and suppliers Company safety managers Standards organizations Transport safety research agencies This work comes at a critical time when road safety authorities are just beginning to recognize the importance of driver distraction as a road safety issue. With balanced and practical guidance, it aims to prevent driver distraction from escalating into an even more significant problem.

In the midst of this macro analysis the authors use pedagogy to bring the micro application alive, e.g. The Human Side and Self and Society so that the students can apply and understand the social problem.

The new edition of James Nairne's highly respected text offers all the content, pedagogy, and visual appeal that professors and students have come to expect from a successful introductory psychology text. The third edition offers a comprehensive look at how psychology works in our everyday lives. This practical, motivating text presents the standard subjects covered in an introductory course, but connects them in a way that adds meaning and consistency to students' study of psychology. How does he do this? By introducing students to the adaptive mind-a theme based on the fact that our thoughts and actions stem from our need to adapt to our surroundings. This unique framework supports practical applications and helps students understand how we use psychology to deal with everyday challenges. Nairne emphasizes the ways particular behaviors, thought processes, and emotions help us solve problems-from memorizing a telephone number to ducking under cover as a building begins to shake to producing a quick physical response in the face of traffic hazards. Beneath the innovative approach, you'll find ample coverage of all the traditional topics around which you build your course.
