Abstract (type = abstract)
Participants performed a primary driving simulation task while concurrently carrying out a secondary cognitive interference task to test for attentional channel overload effects to either the driving or conversational task while performing under both conditions. The simulation involved a moderately difficult driving course and the secondary task required response to a spoken word version of the Baddeley Reasoning Test (1968). The variable manipulated was the spatial location of the Baddeley audio between audio located beside the driver (front seat passenger) and audio located behind the driver (rear seat passenger). The results showed participants made many more driving errors and answered far fewer Baddeley sentences correctly when the audio of the conversation was located to their right versus the behind location and the control condition, suggesting that the location of the conversational audio does play a role in driver distraction. These results are due to overlapping attentional channels. Driving while maintaining a conversation with a simulated front seat passenger demands greater attention and imposes greater risks than driving while maintaining a conversation with a rear seat passenger.
