Samenvatting ESRA (E-Survey of Road users’ Attitudes) is a joint initiative of road safety institutes, research centres, public services, and private sponsors from all over the world. The aim is to collect and analyse comparable data on road safety performance, in particular road safety culture and behaviour of road users. The ESRA data are used as a basis for a large set of road safety indicators. These provide scientific evidence for policy making at national and international levels. This thematic ESRA report on distraction (mobile phone use) focuses on the use of the mobile phone to talk (hand-held and hands-free) and to text (read a text message/email or check social media) while driving. It includes the analysis of aspects related to self-declared unsafe behaviours in traffic, acceptability of unsafe traffic behaviours (personal and social), attitudes towards the use of the mobile phone, risk perception of using the mobile phone, support for policy measures, opinions of traffic rules and penalties, and perception of enforcement. Results are presented separately for the four regions: Europe20, NorthAmerica2, AsiaOceania5, Africa5. The report includes comparisons amongst the regions as well as results of the association with age and gender, and the identification of factors that influence the self-declared behaviour of talking on a hand-held mobile phone and texting while driving a car.
