Road Safety Initiatives for International Visitors to Australia
Wilks, Jeffrey & Watson, Barry C. (2000) Road Safety Initiatives for International Visitors to Australia. In Australian College of Road Safety Yearbook 2000. Executive Media, Melbourne, Vic., pp. 21-31.
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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
