Abstract

Lack of vigilance decreases drivers’ performances thus reducing safe driving tolerances, as well as the ability to react to unexpected events and increasing the likelihood of a crash (Wierwille, 1994; Wierwille et al., 1996), and in Australia between 1995 and 2005, vigilance decline can be estimated as a contributing factor in seven per cent of all reported crashes and 15 per cent of fatal crashes (Queensland Government). Thus, assessing and preventing vigilance decline can reduce the number of road accidents and fatalities and therefore has been a major issue in the past few years (Bekiaris, Amditis and Wevers, 2001).

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.
