Naturalistic driving studies are becoming an increasingly important element in understanding the behavior of drivers and their performance on the road. The data from these studies can provide the breadth and depth of information necessary to investigate specific interests related to all aspects of road safety including, not only how crashes occur, but also the factors that are associated with good driving performance. With the advent of self-driving vehicles and increasing complexity of crash avoidance technologies, naturalistic driving data has become even more valuable as a tool to assist in their development. In this Special Issue, we will investigate the use of naturalistic data to inform the development of all aspects of the safe system approach for road safety from vehicle design to regulation and practice. Papers concerning the use of naturalistic data to support these goals are welcome. Such topics may include, but are not limited to, driver behavior, human–vehicle interface, crash causation, crash avoidance, autonomous vehicles, analysis and evaluation methods, and cost benefit analyses.
