Research report 657 Human factor considerations for a licensing point system

Published: | Category: Healthy and safe people , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The NZ Transport Agency sought to better understand how licensing point systems (LPSs) operate, including how different population groups respond to LPSs

A literature review provided a theoretical background for understanding the functions of LPSs and factors that may influence LPS effectiveness. The LPSs that exist worldwide were studied to identify the features of a ‘best-practice’ system. The Transport Agency offence data for all New Zealand-licensed drivers from 2005 to 2014 was analysed to explore how individuals and cohort drivers respond to licensing points, and to identify factors that impact on the likelihood of multiple offending. An on-line survey of a representative sample of 999 New Zealand adult car-licence holders and focus groups with four key road-user groups (young novice drivers, Māori drivers, professional drivers and motor cyclists) were conducted to investigate knowledge of, and attitude toward, the LPS, as well as acceptability of possible refinements.

Research Report 664 Risks of driving when affected by cannabis, MDMA (ecstasy) and methamphetamine and the deterrence of such behaviour: a literature review

Published: | Category: Healthy and safe people , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This literature review research report on the risks of driving under the influence of drugs and on enforcement of drug driving laws was carried out to inform policy development, including cost-benefit analysis of potential changes to roadside enforcement approaches. The report confirms that cannabis and other drugs lead to more dangerous driving, particularly in combination with alcohol. It shows, however, that there is no clear relationship between the level of drugs consumed and the degree of risky driving. Also, although the principles on which deterrence efforts should be based are clear, the relative deterrent effects of various types of enforcement on drug use among drivers have not been clearly established.

Research Report 675 The relationship between transport and mental health in Aotearoa New Zealand

Published: | Category: Healthy and safe people , Research programme , Research & reports

Little is known about the effects of transport on mental health in Aotearoa, and there is a need to collect better information about the experiences and needs of diverse transport users and to develop a better local understanding of these interrelationships. This literature review provides some initial clues about what role the transport systems could be playing in contributing to an increase in mental distress and mental illness in our communities.
