This study is being conducted to better understand how drivers interact with other vehicles on the road and how this may be influenced by perceptions of others' behaviour.

Investigating travel choice behaviour: a new approach

Since large monetary investments are involved in infrastructure decisions, it is of utmost importance that impacts of transport policies can be accurately predicted. The recent failures to forecast usage and revenues of toll tunnels in Australia illustrate this well. This project aims to contribute by producing improved practical behavioural models to predict responses to such transport policies to assist in better decision making. Further, the project is expected to make several methodological contributions by for the first time merging methods from stated choice surveys, experimental economics, and naturalistic driving simulators in order to better investigate travel choice behaviour in realistic environments.

Assessing Driver Response to Safety Countermeasures in School Zones

School zone safety is an important and emotive issue. School zones operate around school start/end times, on a wide-range of road types often under congested conditions and use a variety of treatments designed to reduce vehicle speeds and improve general safety. This study examines how individual drivers change their behaviour in response to specific treatments.
