dc.description.abstractThis project attempted to get a snapshot of the current distracted road usage situation in Singapore. In summary, two studies were performed. The first being the pedestrian count experiment, when it was found that more pedestrians will be engaged in distracted walking during a legal crossing as opposed to an illegal one. On average, one can expect about 10% of the total pedestrians in Singapore to be distracted when they are crossing a road. The second study executed is the pedestrian/driver questionnaire where 83% of the respondents have reported of seeing at least one instance of being in car where the driver was distracted. A varying percentage of 5-10% of the respondents believes that distracted road usage is not harmful, indicating that the majority of those questioned do know the dangers of distracted road usage. Most of them also believe that the perception of being able to multitask is one the main reasons why others are engaged in distracted road usage. The current legislation and policies in place in Singapore with regard to distracted road usage, remains insufficient, and leaves much to be desired.en_US
