Driving Simulator Comparison


The purpose of this study is to compare Dr. Edward Downs’ (UMD) driving simulator with the driving simulator used by Jenn Hoff in the trauma service to educate 150 undergraduate drivers about the hazards of distracted driving. Pre and post education attitudes will be surveyed and follow-up texts of actual behavior will be employed to evaluate simulators. Cathy McCarty is the Primary Investigator of this study.
