January 30, 2020 MTI Research Snaps Presents: Texting While driving, Is Hands-free Really Safer?  -  online

10:00-10:30a.m. (PST)

Hands-free texting is a popular way around a hefty fine in 48 states and often viewed as safe behind the wheel. However, MTI research found that while participants perceived an increased level of safety while using hands-free interfaces, response times and drift did not significantly differ from those manually texting. Join the conversation as we delve into how this seemingly convenient solution to texting and driving bans might do little to limit distracted driving.

March 19, 2020 MTI Research Snaps Presents:  Sexual Harassment on Public Transit: The University Student Experience  -  Online

March 19, 2020 | 10-10:30AM (PDT)

Sexual harassment is, sadly, a routine experience for transit users. New MTI research explores San Jose State University (SJSU) students' experiences and perceptions related to sexual harassment and assault when using public transit. The report, Crime and Harassment on Public Transportation: A Survey of SJSU Students Set in International Context, found that twice as many women as men reported verbal and non-verbal harassment, but that both genders indicate harassment as a deterrent to using public transit. Fully 63% of SJSU students reported some form of harassment during transit journeys. The SJSU experience was then compared to findings from a global study surveying college students in 18 cities across six continents. These and other findings, as well as the researchers' recommendations, will be discussed in the webinar.
