Driver Courtesy Project

The research aimed to understand the effect of driver courtesy and discourtesy on other road users, the effects on the driver exhibiting the behaviour, the motivations for driving discourteously, and the motivators to become more courteous when driving. It also recommended strategies to promote courtesy in road users. The project was achieved by a comprehensive review of driving courtesy literature; focus group research to explore driver’s perceptions; and simulator-based research to investigate the impact of courteous and discourteous driving behaviour.
