Young driver cohort study - the DRIVE study: Indigenous component

 

Overview

The DRIVE study involved the investigation of the potential determinants of motor vehicle crashes and injuries of over 20,000 young NSW drivers. The study looked at the participants road risk perceptions, risky driving behaviours, pre-licensing driving experience, training and education, mental health, and sleep habits.

From the DRIVE study information was analysed for those participants who identified as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. Little is known about the learning-to-drive experiences or driving related risk factors for young Indigenous people and this analysis from the DRIVE study aimed to inform further debate and research.
