What are some articles you think are helpful for a paper thesis "A responsible driver/motorist is equally as dangerous as a distracted driver?"


I understand that this thesis may not be relevant to my major. It is for my academic success class; it is purposed to guide me through the basics of writing a research paper.

This is a great question which brings up an important point about the nature of academic research and writing.  That is that you shouldn't necessarily have a thesis before you've looked at the literature.  You may find, as you will with this topic, that the research does not support the idea that responsible drivers are just as dangerous as distracted drivers. 

You can look at the research on this topic if you go to the all purpose libguide at and then choose the journal articles tab.  Next, choose the database Academic Search Complete.  You will be asked to login using your six digit student ID and the first part of your Brenau email address.  Next, limit your search by clicking on the full text and the scholarly (peer reviewed) journal boxes below the search bar.  I used the search terms Distracted Driving AND Safety and I found many good articles that deal with this topic.
