Traffic and Safety

Work Zone safety when distracted driving is involved.

The research project in question is focused on work zone safety and is more specifically targeted and decreasing the problems in Work Zones with Distracted Driving. This work would likely be mainly tested in the Twin Cities for ease of access to the field equipment but would be applicable statewide on freeways and at-grade intersection arterials.

    Distracted driving is not only an issue in Work Zones, but on all roads. Methods discovered in this research would likely be applicable in other locations.
