Risks associated with the use of mobile phones while driving : A qualitative research study on how young people consider risk taking (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie belyser vad några unga bilförare uppgav vara risker med användandet av mobiltelefon under bilkörning. Studien genomfördes med hjälp av kvalitativ metod. Sex informanter (tre tjejer och tre killar) i åldrarna 20-25 år intervjuades med semistrukturerade intervjuer. För att analysera data användes tematisk analys. Resultatet visade att det fanns de som tyckte att användningen av mobiltelefon under bilkörning var något som var distraherande och gjorde att fokus inte endast var på bilkörningen. Det visade sig även att samtliga informanter använder mobiltelefon när de kör bil med avsikt att dagens samhälle är uppbyggt kring teknologi och att det är ett problem att inte vara ständigt uppkopplad.

Abstract [en]

This study highlights what some young drivers stated to be risks with the use of mobile phones while driving. The study is performed using a qualitative method. Six informants (three girls and three boys) aged 20-25 years were interviewed with semi-structured interviews. To analyze the data, thematic analysis were used. The result out of this study showed that a greater proportion of the respondents felt that the use of mobile phones while driving was something that was distracting and the focus was not only on the actual driving. It was also shown that all the respondents use mobile phone while driving a car with the intention that it is a large part of their daily lives and it is something they depend on. The informants believe that the use of mobile phones while driving is distracting but that society is so built around technology that it is a problem not to be connected constantly.
