Objectives:

A study examining the effects of three different interventions on young driving offenders (mostly speeders). E-learning was compared with classroom education, and fines.

Methodology:

Quasi-experimental design.

Key Findings:

  • E-learning group showed a reduction in offending compared with the other two groups.

  • Also a reduction in collisions in e-learning group.

Keywords:

Evaluation, driver improvement, driver education, driving offence, collision, accident.

Comments:

Regression to mean could not be ruled out for accident reduction. In addition author is careful to point out that while the e-learning seems effective for offenders, this cannot necessarily be generalised to all drivers.
