Samenvatting This study assessed the acceptability of several in-vehicle ITS technologies to a sample of young Australian novice drivers. Eight focus groups were conducted, four in metropolitan NSW and four in rural NSW, involving 58 drivers aged 17 to 25 years who, from examination of crash data, were likely to derive the greatest safety benefit from the selected technologies. Results revealed that the alcohol interlock and seat belt reminder systems were the most acceptable to young drivers, while the fatigue warning (for rural participants only), intelligent speed adaptation and lane departure warning had the lowest levels of acceptability. The metropolitan and rural participants' attitudes towards the systems were generally very similar. However, a number of differences in the acceptability of several technologies were observed. Suggestions for enhancing the acceptability of ITS technologies to young novice drivers are made along with recommendations for further research.
