Samenvatting Driver Distraction: A Review of the Literature. The purpose of this review is to examine the current literature on driver distraction as a foundation for potential public health policy and intervention. As such the review addresses those types of distraction that are most prevalent, most implicated in risk of collision and most responsive to public health intervention. These include research on handheld and hands-free cell phone use, forms of distraction other than phone use and the potential of increased risk from distraction for teenaged drivers. Research on video advertising signs as a source of distraction is included by request. (Author/publisher) Driver Distraction and Cell Phone Use: A Policy Paper. The purpose of this paper is to examine the current literature, public opinion, legislation, cost-benefits and initiatives on driver distraction pertaining to cell phone use, to form a foundation for potential public health policy and intervention. Reviewed studies include experiments, naturalistic studies, analysis of crash data and surveys of drivers, with preference given to evidence-based material and original research. Canadian data was included when available. Due to time constraints the literature was not surveyed comprehensively, but studies chosen are representative of the current state of the literature. Newer telematics technologies, such as navigation aids and internet applications, were considered only as a general category, with specific emphasis given to research on cell phones.
