This ‘Think Piece’, commissioned on behalf of Road Safety Scotland (RSS), identifies the extent to which road safety interventions in Scotland (and further afield) aimed at young drivers/pre-drivers, promote responsible attitudes to being a driver which have a lasting influence on driving behaviour.

Professor McKenna identifies the challenges that exist and puts forward possible solutions. This piece provides a reasoned argument which implies that without sound evaluation there is little evidence to suggest that many existing interventions have any lasting effect.
