Outcomes of Variability in Teen Driving Experience and Exposure: Evidence from the Naturalistic Driving Study

This research project will use naturalistic driving data sources to evaluate how exposure to driving in more diverse traffic and road environments may be associated with teen driver behavior, performance indicators that lead to crashes, and other measures such as near-crashes, speeding, and observed distracted driving. The analysis will consider changes in driver behavior and subsequent crash risk. Based on the results of the analysis, the study will develop recommendations/strategies for improving teen driver safety.
