How and Why Washingtonian's are "Cross-faded" behind the wheel

Presenters: Angie Ward
Spruce
Road user behavior remains the most common risk factor associated with traffic crashes.  With recent increases in traffic fatalities, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission made a commitment to apply new methods to changing road user behavior by dedicating resources to explore the influence of the social environment on road user behavior using a model called Traffic Safety Culture Change.  Since it’s best to measure culture one behavior at a time, Washington chose to focus on driving under the influence of cannabis and alcohol (CUI-CA) since poly-drugged drivers’ involvement in traffic deaths is rising.  Come hear the results of this work and what Washington plans to do with the information they gleaned.

Virtual Reality Driver Training - The Future of Global Training

Presenters: Dominic Dobson
Oak

Dobson will present an overview of how Virtual Reality (VR) training effectively immerses trainees in a highly-realistic environment which presents lifelike scenarios and builds both muscle memory and reduces training times and costs, with 100% safety. VR training has been proven to teach drivers specific skills using a fully-immersive environment that only VR can offer. Retention rates up to 70% better than traditional methods have been proven in academic studies. Objective testing, using advanced data collection, means that instructors can train and test a drivers skill sets BEFORE they ever sit behind the wheel of an expensive vehicle fleet. This will also include an overview of the Intel-sponsored "Teen Driver Study" completed this past summer. A copy of which can be seen here: https://docsend.com/view/v2zyixg.

Oregon Provider Workshop

Presenters: William Warner, Mary DeFerrari and Jeff Denton
Oak
ODOT’s driver education team will help providers build confidence coordinating the administrative portion of their programs.  Participants will learn how to appropriately name classes in the Student Data Entry System (SDES), to enter and change student information, to request reimbursement, and to work past common glitches.  They will learn how to access the provider portal of the Reporting and Provider Inspection Database (RAPID) to complete pre-inspection surveys, view previous inspection reports, and submit corrective action plans.  RAPID provider portal also simplifies a provider’s response to deficiencies and provides a secure means for transmitting information. The session is designed for new providers and program coordinators at all levels.  Bring your questions!

The data: What do national motorcycle injury and fatality data look like? What are the top-level crash factors? The local perspective: What are the persistent regional crash problems in the Pacific Northwest? On the range: What does rider education look like? And in the classroom: Traditional vs. online learning, a tour of the Team Oregon (and Idaho STAR) eRider® online classroom, and what it could mean for driver education.
