Acquiring a Car as a Habit Discontinuity

This project investigates the role of car change as a ‘window of opportunity’ to support change of driving habits, in favour of more economical driving style (‘eco-driving’). A quasi-randomised controlled trial will assess three types of intervention (information provision, a smart phone app, or social commitment) to foster eco-driving.
