Developing Control amongst Young Drivers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Focus group discussion on questions relating to control of motor vehicles, control of other external conditions and self-control has been part of ongoing research into the social and cultural factors affecting young people’s approach to driving. In these discussions, the young men tended to focus on car-handling skills – any
mention of self-control was predominantly indirect – while the young women made direct references to self-control, but only infrequently. In general, in regard to control in driving, these young drivers tended to focus more on control of the car and less on the development of self-control skills.
