  9. Driving errors of learner teens: frequency, nature and their association with practice.

    Accident Analysis & Prevention 72:433 (2014) PMID 25150523

    Despite demonstrating basic vehicle operations skills sufficient to pass a state licensing test, novice teen drivers demonstrate several deficits in tactical driving skills during the first several months of independent driving. Improving our knowledge of the types of errors made by teen permit ...

    JAMA Pediatrics 168(8):764 (2014) PMID 24957844

    Many studies have failed to show an effect of parent-supervised practice driving on the driving performance of teenagers; nevertheless, most Graduated Driver Licensing programs have provisions that require supervised practice. To determine whether a web-based intervention, the Teen Driving Plan ...
  12. Child passenger safety practices and injury risk in crashes with father versus mother drivers.

    Injury Prevention 20(4):272 (2014) PMID 24324195

    In order to test stereotypes that mothers are more safety conscious than fathers, this study aimed to explore differences in restraint patterns, front-row seating and injury for children in crashes when driven by fathers versus mothers, both when driving alone and with other adults. From 15 Janu...
