A Correlation Between the Types of Driving Distractions and Number of Accidents Encountered by Public Drivers in Danao City Terminal
Keywords:driving experience, driver's profile, mitigating accident
Inexperienced drivers, in particular, may find it challenging to react in a crash if the brain is distracted when driving. This study determined the relationship between the types of driving distraction and the number of accidents public drivers encounter in the Danao City terminal. This study used descriptive quantitative research with 100 respondents using the survey questionnaire. The data were analyzed using percentage frequency, weighted mean, and Pearson Correlation Coefficient (r). The majority of the respondents have encountered accidents due to over speeding. Based on the result, the public drivers in Danao terminal were not affected by Cognitive driving distraction but were rarely affected by Manual and Visual distraction. This study uncovered that among the public drivers in Danao City, one probable cause of the increase in road accidents is Manual and Visual distraction.
