Australian NRMA study finds drivers take more care with a pavlova in the car then driving children. | Daily Mail Online
NRMA Insurance, an Australian insurance company, conducted a survey of more than 1000 Australians, and 77% of men and 65% of women said they were 'confident in their driving skills.' is. In addition, 27% of the respondents answered that they 'eat while driving' and 26% answered that they 'step on the accelerator at the moment when the traffic light turns blue'. In addition, 25% said that they had driven away because of the child sitting in the back seat.
Therefore, NRMA Insurance has 20 subjects evaluate their driving skills by having them perform three types of driving: 'driving alone', 'driving with a child in a car', and 'driving with a pavlova in a car'. The experiment was conducted over 8 days.
In the questionnaire after the driving test, half of the drivers answered that 'I drove more carefully when I put my child on' and 'I tried to drive more carefully when I put Pavlova in the car'. It was only 12%.
However, in reality, it turned out that 95% of drivers performed the most careful braking when putting Pavlova on the car, and the accuracy of turning corners also improved. In addition, when Pavlova was placed in the car, mobile phone use was reduced by 45% and 20% of subjects showed improved speed control.
Psychologist Dr. Adrian Camilleri responded to a series of findings by NRMA Insurance: 'People pay attention to a lot of things when they learn to drive, but as they gain more driving experience, they coast. As a result, you will lose your attention. ' However, Dr. Camilleri speculates that the driver will drive carefully because the situation of 'putting a fluffy cake on the car' is not normal.
In addition, NRMA Insurance has released a movie that encourages safe driving based on the results of this survey.
