The number of road accidents has been continuously increasing over the past few years in Mauritius although drivers have to go through training and strict testing phases before earning a competent driving license. This research study aims to develop an interactive web based multimedia tool named “MauHazard” to assess the hazard perception skills of drivers specific to the Mauritius context. To being with, identification of key road traffic hazards specific to the Mauritian context was undertaken and a hazard taxonomy was proposed. In addition, there has been also the recording of real road traffic footage based on the identified hazards. After the compilation of traffic hazards was completed, the interactive web-based hazard perception tool was developed and tested against its pre-defined list of functional requirements. Following the development phase, 273 participants were recruited to take part in the hazard perception test and after which the data collated was entered in SPSS for statistical analysis. Since the research study revealed a poor hazard perception level among Mauritian drivers, therefore it is vital to provide appropriate training that will not only improve the hazard perception skills of drivers in Mauritius but will also contribute in significantly reducing accident liabilities.
