MotionMasters Interviews Country’s Leading Authority On Distracted Driving
He’s been on Oprah, written about in the New York Times and last week he testified before both houses of Congress. He is Dr. David Strayer, professor of psychology at the University of Utah and widely regarded as the country’s leading authority on distracted driving.
We interviewed Dr. Strayer recently in his Applied Cognition Lab on campus for our forthcoming educational video, “Deadly Driving Distractions.” He also provided us with an on-camera demo of the Lab’s $100, 000 PatrolSim II Driving Simulator.
Not only did Dr. Strayer scare the bejabbers out of us with findings such as “Impairments associated with using a cell phone while driving can be as profound as those associated with driving while drunk,” he also provided straightforward, easy to understand data that will resonate with the educational video’s target audience of teens and young adults.
