Samenvatting This document outlines NHTSA’s plans for distraction research. To tackle this complex problem, four initiatives have been outlined in this document: 1. Improving the understanding of the problem, 2. Reducing driver workload from in-vehicle systems (interfaces), 3. Keeping distracted drivers safe, and 4. Increasing public awareness to recognize the risks and consequences of distracted driving. This Plan reflects both ongoing and planned research. At the conclusion of each project the results will be made available on the NHTSA Web site. Some of the projects will also provide additional public benefit, such as media messages to warn of the dangers of distracted driving. NHTSA is confident that this comprehensive approach, in addition to the contributions from other stakeholders, will move us toward our ultimate goal: eliminating distraction-related crashes.
