http://www.forthebetter.com.au When we think about causes of inattention when driving we instantly think about things like mobile phones and passengers. But we wanted to know if different emotional states could be just as distracting, so we put 5 drivers to the test in the Attention Powered Car to see just how distracting our emotions can be. We're back at the RAC Driving Centre to delve into this issue of inattention on our roads and see the true impact different emotional states really has on our attention levels when driving.

http://www.forthebetter.com.au There are plenty of things in our cars these days that can be distracting, but what are the worst? We took the Attention Powered Car on the world's longest inattention road test and we discovered that on average our drivers lost attention at least once every minute. The Attention Powered Car then headed back to the RAC Driving Centre where further tests were conducted to investigate initial findings from the road trip. In this new webisode we explore some of the different in car distractions and the impact they can have on a driver's attention levels. From mobile usage to eating and drinking, see the surprising results on what are the worst in car distractions from our experiments.

In an effort to learn more about driver inattention, one of the biggest killers on WA roads, RAC created the world's first Attention Powered Car -- a car that goes when you're paying attention and slows when you're not. On the final leg of our road trip, we visited Narrogin in the Wheatbelt, which is also often dubbed by emergency services as the 'accident belt'. Here, single vehicle crashes with young drivers behind the wheel are particularly high, so we wanted to see if inattention was part of the problem. Our first driver, Shawn, took the Attention Powered Car and few mates around town. Not surprisingly, his mates proved to be a distraction, as well as thinking about his girlfriend and sadly, friends lost on the road. Next up was Speedway Driver Coby. She performed well on the open road, but had plenty inattention moments to match. Perhaps most telling though, was her insight into the minds of many drivers who even after being made aware of their limitations, aren't likely to change behaviour. Check out the video to see the Attention Powered Car on the road and how our drivers performed. Plus, follow the journey, watch all webisodes from our journey and keep up-to-date with what we have planned next by visiting forthebetter.com.au

The Attention Powered Car, developed by the RAC, is into leg 3 of its road trip around WA visiting towns including Donnybrook, Nannup and Pemberton, heading to Albany and then finishing in the Wheatbelt town of Narrogin. In this episode we put two drivers behind the wheel that drive for a living. We wanted to see if their professional experience influenced their attention levels. How will our Ambo and Australia's best truck driver perform? First up was Mike. As a St John's Ambulance Volunteer, he needs to be calm and confident driving under pressure and at high speed. And it showed. So too with our second driver, Murray, who's TNT Australia's best truck driver. Both came out determined and focused to prove they had the edge. To some degree they did. Incidences of inattention were fewer and further between, but they were still there. Encouragingly, both drivers were much better at refocusing when they did lose attention. Check out this webisode to see just how they performed, as well as what insights we are finding about driver inattention as we take the Attention Powered Car through southern WA.

Inattention is one of the biggest killers on our roads today. Did you know inattention or distractions account for almost as many fatalities in WA as speeding, or drink driving? That's why the RAC has created the world's first Attention Powered Car to tackle the issue and hopefully find some solutions. Learn more as Murdoch University Psychology Professor, Dr Jefferies, and Royal Perth Hospital's Head of Trauma, Dr Rao, explain inattention.
