OSU Research Opportunity for Novice Drivers

Participate in a Ohio State University Teen Driver Study

One of the biggest killers of Ohio teens is traffic crashes.

Young Ohio drivers make up 5% of drivers but are responsible for 15% of crashes on Ohio roads.

 

Researchers at Ohio State University are seeking to decrease the likelihood of teen-driver crashes with the help of DRVN, a free driver training app.

Teens will complete up to four 5-15 minute online surveys about driving opinions and behaviors.

These surveys may also include traffic safety information.

 

At the end of each survey, young drivers will choose ONE of the following incentives:

  • Service letters verifying 15-30 minutes (depending on the survey duration) of completed community service by participating in each survey.
  • Amazon e-gift cards of $2-$5 (depending on survey duration).

 

Parental permission is required before joining the study.

Parents and teens use the app and teens will be paid.
