Abstract

Introduction

This study reports on the development of a self report assessment tool to increase the efficacy of crash prediction within Australian Fleet settings

Over last 20 years an array of measures have been produced

(Driver anger scale, Driving Skill Inventory, Manchester Driver Behaviour Questionnaire, Driver Attitude Questionnaire, Driver Stress Inventory, Safety Climate Questionnaire)

While these tools are useful, research has demonstrated limited ability to accurately identify individuals most likely to be involved in a crash.

Reasons cited include;

  • Crashes are relatively rare
  • Other competing factors may influence crash event
  • Ongoing questions regarding the validity of self report measures (common method variance etc)
  • Lack of contemporary issues relating to fleet driving performance

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.
