Description

Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) schemes aim to reduce crash rates among young drivers by helping them to gradually build experience within a supportive environment. The introduction of a proposed GDL scheme in one country of the UK (Northern Ireland) provides an opportunity to determine the impact that these schemes have upon wellbeing outcomes by comparing crash rates and other outcomes before and after the intervention in the exposed population (Northern Ireland) and non-exposed population (other countries of the UK). This collection contains baseline qualitative data captured prior to the introduction of the proposed GDL scheme in Northern Ireland. It contains transcripts of 21 focus (natural) group interviews conducted with young adults aged 16-22 or their parents from Northern Ireland, England and Wales. Topics covered include the role of driving, giving and taking lifts, the local transport system and alternatives to driving.
