This is a report on work in progress. Statistics on road safety and other transport indicators in South East Asia point to significant road safety problems. Western road safety technology and knowledge can be applied to those problems, and a number of efforts have been made in this direction. However, the context of transport development in South East Asia, as well as challenges arising from social, cultural and economic factors, limit the potential for transfer of knowledge and technology. The research being undertaken by the author is aimed at a better understanding of these limitations and their causes, and a more effective means of improving road safety in South East Asia.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are 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.
