Technologies designed to mitigate distracted driving are perceived to be a solution that holds great potential to reduce and prevent collisions. In order to increase understanding of these technologies and their role in reducing distracted driving, it is important that users are able to critically assess the objective or purpose of technologies, their limitations, and the potential benefits or value offered by them. To aid in assessments to determine the impact of new technologies on distraction among drivers, a framework is needed to clearly define key questions that should be asked as part of any assessment of technologies designed to reduce distracted driving.
