    Abstract

    Recent work by the Federal Office of Road Safety indicates that there are approximately 45 international visitors killed on Australian roads each year. In absolute terms this is not a large problem, representing only 2.5% of Australia’s annual road toll. However, the full ramifications of motor vehicle crashes involving international visitors are often overlooked. Wilks and Watson have argued that fatal crashes are only the ‘tip of the iceberg’ and that the social and economic consequences of non-fatal crashes among tourists must also be considered.

    Impact and interest:

    Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

    These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

    Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
