Evaluation of the driVR young road user education intervention

14 August 2019

While students enjoy using VR and find it engaging, limited or one-off exposure to road safety education is unlikely to bring about ‘meaningful changes in attitudes’, according to evaluation of a Scottish road safety programme.

driVR is a 50-minute classroom intervention, aimed at 16-18 year olds, which utilises virtual reality (VR) to encourage participants to consider their attitudes towards road safety.

Funded by Transport Scotland, the project is delivered by Safety Cameras Scotland, Police Scotland and Glasgow City Council.

During driVR, students experience two VR films, take part in group discussions and complete a workbook – to encourage them to consider changing their behaviour in order to make them safer on the roads.
