Abstract/Description: In 2004, 3,242 people died in traffic-related fatalities in Florida. The present study looked to further investigate the behaviors and factors related to safe operation of a motor vehicle. Automobile drivers were observed while stopped at traffic lights along a set route in a Southeastern city during this study. Observations were conducted by research teams driving a 6.9 mile route during peak evening traffic hours. At stoplights the research teams observed the drivers directly to their right and recorded data on seatbelt and cellular phone usage, gender of the driver, type of vehicle, vehicle color, and weather conditions. Observations were collected over a 10 month period to evaluate any possible effects due to changes in population. Two implementations of Click-It-Or-Ticket model programs were evaluated using ABA designs.
