Samenvatting The current research focussed on identifying features that are salient to drivers in their risk perception judgements for 19 in-vehicle distractions. Both technological (e.g. mobile phones) and non technological (e.g. eating) distractions were considered. Analysis identified that males and females were rating 7 of the 19 distractions differently. The current paper presents the data for the female participants. Multidimensional scaling analysis identified three main dimensions contributing to female drivers risk perception judgements. Qualitative characteristics such as the level of exposure to a distraction were identified as significant contributors to drivers risk perception as well as features inherent in the distractions such as distractions being related to communication. This exploratory work contributes to better understanding female drivers perceptions of risk associated with in-vehicle distractions.
