PROJECT TITLE: Using the New SHRP2 Naturalistic Driving Study Safety Databases to Examine Safety Concerns for Older Drivers
PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR(S) & UNIVERSITY(S): Co-PI’s: Michael Knodler and Song Gao, University of Massachusetts Amherst
The New England Transportation Consortium (NETC) is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, March 4 from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m. ET to share findings from the NETC project Using the New SHRP2 Naturalistic Driving Study Safety Databases to Examine Safety Concerns for Older Drivers. This project studied intersection safety for drivers 65 and older using data from the naturalistic driving study (NDS) funded through SHRP2 (the second Strategic Highway Research Program).
Webinar attendees will learn how researchers used the SHRP2 NDS data and dashboard camera video to investigate the key factors contributing to crashes at signalized intersections, especially for drivers age 65 and over making a left turn. Principal investigator Michael Knodler and researcher Tracy Zafian of the UMass Transportation Center will discuss the project’s findings, and the webinar will conclude with a short Q&A.
- Tracy Zafian, UMass Transportation Center (researcher)
