Recording - Driver Response to Non-Traditional Safety Messages

Traffic Safety Pulse News

These messages attempt to provoke an emotional response and may reference themes like popular culture, sports, or use rhymes to increase their effectiveness. Join the AASHTO Committee on Transportation Communications for its monthly webinar series as Tripp Shealy, an Associate Professor in the Charles E. Via, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech, reviews the study on measuring the effectiveness of these non-traditional safety messages. Find the recording here.
