Study of Drivers
Michael Clayton, Jacksonville State University professor of psychology,
far right, and psychology graduate students are currently conducting
a study on driving behavior. They will be observing individuals in automobiles
and taking note of typical driving behaviors. They are shown here observing
individuals who used a cell phone while driving. They also tallied how
many individuals they could persuade to hang up their cell phones by
displaying a sign stating, "Please hang up! I care." Individuals who
did in fact hang up their cell phones were rewarded with the reverse
side of the sign that simply said "Thank you!" Dr. Clayton and his team
will be observing individuals for other behavior patterns until Spring
Break at the intersection where University Circle exits onto Pelham
Rd. From left to right: Frances Archuleta, Bridgett Helms, Jana Vallejo,
