Samenvatting Driver distraction encompasses a variety of behaviours which can divert the attention of the driver away from the driving task, exacerbating the risk of ‘driver error’ and adding behavioural complexity to the environment in which they operate. To add to our understanding of driver distraction in New Zealand, this paper summaries results from two research studies conducted by the Ministry of Transport. The first study presents initial results of an examination of the content of police reported crashes and in 2002 and 2003 that included the ‘attention diverted by’ codes (350-360) as a contributing factor in the crashes. A summary of the different types of inside the vehicle distractions and types of movement classifications involved in these crashes is provided. The second study presents some of the results of focus group research exploring how the public perceive driver distraction risk.
