MINISTRY OF TRANSPORTATION OF ONTARIO,ROAD SAFETY RESEARCH PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM. Ontario s roads are among the safest in North America Despite that and despite the significant. improvements in road safety in recent years motor vehicle collisions take an unacceptable toll. in human life and personal injury Traffic collisions are a leading cause of death among persons. of all ages Similarly motor vehicle collisions are among the leading causes of injury and. disability as demonstrated by analyses of injury data The Ministry of Transportation MTO. continually pursues road safety research with a focus on road user behaviour and social issues. surrounding this complex field Research into driver behaviour the causes of collisions and. other issues impacting road safety provide helpful insights into the areas that MTO needs to. target in the development of new initiatives, Accordingly MTO provides research funding through the Road Safety Research Partnership. Program RSRPP which promotes a productive relationship with road injury researchers in the. academic community The research conducted under this program will identify causes of traffic. collisions and suggest ways to reduce the resulting tragic loss of life The purpose of this. program is to fund research into the behavioural and social aspects of road user safety in order. to identify the factors involved in motor vehicle collisions suggest ways to reduce the impacts. on individuals and society as a whole and monitor the effectiveness of road safety initiatives. This work will support Ontario s efforts to improve road safety and keep the province among the. safest jurisdictions in the world MTO looks forward to seeing the results of the innovative and high. quality research that Ontario s hospitals colleges universities and other public institutions are. capable of conducting, A set of application forms can be found with this package Additional copies are available upon. request Please direct applications and inquiries to mary gallucci ontario ca with RSRPP in the. subject line and copy rsrpp ontario ca, The application deadline is July 15 2015 The deadline for forms of approval from the ethics. committee of the sponsoring institution is July 31 2015 The electronic copy of the application. package must be received by the application deadline along with indication that hard copies are in. transit Please send hard copies to,Mary Gallucci,Road Safety Research Partnership Program.

LEVERAGING TECHNOLOGY TO IMPROVE ROAD SAFETY e g AUTOMATED VEHICLES. IN VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY TELEMATICS, A wide range of information and communication technologies that have the potential to improve road. safety have emerged in recent years and more advanced technologies are undergoing rapid. development Research will examine these technologies and their applications to the road user and or to. existing ministry driver licensing sanctioning remediation programs to determine effects on driver. performance and safety related driving outcomes and or to improve the effectiveness of existing. ministry programs,VULNERABLE ROAD USERS, Research will address the need for a systematic examination of the reasons for serious crashes. involving pedestrians cyclists and motorcyclists in Ontario Research will look at the safety issues. related to vulnerable road users in Ontario and provide recommendations on how to reduce the. frequency and severity of collisions involving vulnerable road users. DRUG IMPAIRED DRIVING, Research will promote an understanding of how drugs other than alcohol impair driver ability and or. affect collision risk at different drug levels or concentrations Examples would include a literature review. systematic review scoping review or meta analysis to determine the current state of knowledge on this. topic As with Alcohol Impaired Driving see below research will contribute to a deeper understanding. of drugs and driving behaviour the relationship of this behaviour to other cognitive and psychosocial. factors e g psychiatric disorders cognitive decline other forms of medical fitness levels of social. support etc and of the relationship between drug use and vulnerable road user groups e g passengers. pedestrians and cyclists Research may also encompass a review and comparison of field sobriety tests. such as the Standardized Field Sobriety Test and others that are used in other jurisdictions to consider. the effectiveness of their applicability and use within Ontario. SAFETY ON RURAL ROADS, Research will study rural roads as opposed to urban roads from several perspectives including the mix. of road users and vehicles road conditions infrastructure speed limits and actual speeds travelled in. order to identify factors contributing to a higher incidence of fatalities on rural roads. ALCOHOL IMPAIRED DRIVING, Research will contribute to a deeper understanding of drinking and driving behaviour its relationship. to other cognitive and psychosocial factors e g psychiatric disorders cognitive decline other forms. of medical fitness levels of social support etc and of the relationship between alcohol use and. vulnerable road user groups e g passengers pedestrians and cyclists. HIGH RISK DRIVERS, Research will examine self reported behaviours and attitudes of drivers who engage in risky driving. behaviours and the deterrent impact of Ontario s various countermeasures and laws e g aggressive. drivers suspended drivers drivers convicted of street racing etc Alternatively research may involve. engaging in an objective analysis of driver behaviour via driving records. MEDICAL FITNESS TO DRIVE DRIVERS WITH COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENTS DECLINES. Research will contribute to an increased understanding of how driving performance and or collision risk. are affected by declines in cognitive ability Research will examine the specific functions i e. cognitive motor sensory etc that are affected either by the aging process or by different types of. trauma to the brain,OFF ROAD VEHICLES, Research will investigate the road safety and operational implications of allowing additional off road. vehicles ORVs on road Studies may involve a longitudinal analysis of fatalities and injuries before. and after allowing extended on road access to other types of ORVs Alternatively studies may. involve researching and evaluating different off road vehicle rider training models delivery methods. to improve the ORV licensing and the interaction between riders and the environment e g. greenhouse gas emissions,DRIVER DISTRACTION AND INATTENTION. Research will examine how and whether different types of driver and passenger behaviour and other. external stimuli divert attention from the driving task Research will also contribute to an. understanding of the effects of cellphone use handheld devices and other technology on driver. behaviour and road safety,DROWSY DRIVING, Research will provide information on the incidence of drowsy driving in the Ontario driving. population and how fatigue affects driver performance and or collision risk Research will contribute. to an understanding of how drowsy driving incidence can be reduced Research may be based on an. analysis of collision data simulator laboratory experiments and or survey data. LARGE TRUCKS, Potential research projects may include a systematic analysis of crash causation involving large trucks. in Ontario A study of this type would involve collision reconstruction at the scene of the crash. DRIVER TRAINING, Research will provide information as to how new technologies such as telematics online education. and or driving simulators could be used to effectively complement replace the in class on road.
