Researchers these days are using computer simulations rather than actual testing environments to evaluate driving behavior. Why? For the most part, simulations are more cost effective and safer. However, reliably capturing reality in a simulated environment can be challenging. In an effort to increase the realism of its driving simulator, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute […]
New Study: “Other Drivers” Are a Bigger Threat on the Road
Three-fourths of Texas drivers in a recent survey say they have talked on a cell phone behind the wheel within the past month, about the same number as those who reported speeding. Nearly half say they have texted while driving, slightly more than the number who ran a stop sign or red light. Financial services […]
Texas Drivers Report Improvements in Some Safety Behaviors
Survey also tracks awareness of safety programs, campaigns TEXAS DRIVERS in 2013 were slightly less inclined to report they exceeded speed limits or talked on a cell phone while driving than they were the previous year, according to recent research. In the study, funded annually by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) since 2010, the […]
