Abstract

The Manchester Driver Behaviour Questionnaire (DBQ) is increasingly becoming one of the most prominent measurement scales to examine self-reported driving behaviours (Lajunen & Summala, 2003). For example, the DBQ has been extensively utilised in a range of driver safety research areas, such as: age differences in driving behaviour (Dobson et al., 1999), the genetics of driving behaviour (Bianchi & Summala, 2004), cross cultural studies (Lajunen et al., 2003) as well as factors contributing to accident involvement (Dobson et al., 1999; Meksen, Lajunen & Summala, 2002; Parker et al., 1995) and demerit point loss (Davey et al., 2007). Furthermore, the versatility of the DBQ has also been demonstrated via the utilisation of the instrument in a number of countries, including China (Xie & Parker, 200), Australia (Davey et al., 2006; Dobson et al., 1999; Newnam, Watson & Murray, 2004), New Zealand (Sullman, Meadows & Pajo, 2002), Finland (Bianchi & Summala, 2004; Mesken et al., 2002), and the United Kingdom (Parker et al., 1995; Parker et al., 2000).

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.
