Abstract

It has been found that 88% of fatalities on Irish roads are due to driver error. It is believed that if road users were better educated in the Rules of the Road, then the death toll would be significantly reduced. The death toll in Ireland in 2005 was 399. As we move beyond the halfway point of the year 2006, the death toll has reached a frightening level at 234 people whose lives have now been lost on Irish roads. The death toll is showing no sign of reducing.

The "Road Rulez" e-learning system is intended to educate experienced drivers as well as absolute beginners. The system includes a balance of numerous animations and easy to understand text describing the rules of the road and how to properly control a vehicle. All of this is accompanied by a number of assessments to test the various driver levels. This approach should educate road users on the Rules of the Road resulting in a lot more safer drivers and a lot less road fatalities. This system also holds potential for further development.
