Monkeystack was engaged by Austroads to produce a library of Hazard Perception Test (HPT) videos and supporting material.
This library includes 197 animated videos for motorcycle riders as well as car drivers, providing materials for the world’s first motorcycle-specific HPT.
Shown to reduce the likelihood of crashes, the computer based HPT measures a driver’s or rider’s ability to recognise potentially dangerous situations on the road and respond appropriately. The test is part of the licensing process in NSW, South Australia, Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland.
The scripts for the videos were developed around the most problematic road and traffic hazards for novice drivers and motorcyclists. Chosen scenarios were determined through an analysis of mass crass data and in-depth crash investigation data by the Centre for Automotive Safety Research.
This new content will modernise the HPTs currently in use, and provide jurisdictions that do not have a Hazard Perception Test the opportunity to introduce one to enhance their graduated licensing system.
