A paper titled ‘Effects of alcohol on speeding and road positioning among young drivers: a driving simulator study’ co-authored by Z.Christoforou, M.Karlaftis, G.Yannis is recently published in the Transportation Research Record Science Journal. The paper focuses on the behavior of young drivers under the influence of alcohol, in a driving simulator experiment in which participants were subjected to a common predefined dose of alcohol consumption. Comparing behavior before and after consumption as well as across individuals and different BrAC levels allows for useful insights into driver behavior, as well as for suggestions on policy interventions. Results indicate strong differences in individuals, mainly because of differentiated driving experience and baseline driving skills. The results also designate reaction time and speeding as the most robust alcohol impairment indicators that affect driver choices directly. Most important, results suggest that the BrAC-speed curve across individuals is not monotonic over all BrAC intervals.
