Abstract

Driver inattention is a very significant but often neglected road safety issue. In terms of its contribution to the social cost of road crashes, it far outweighs the contribution of drink driving, speeding, fatigue or non-use of seatbelt. This paper explores some of the common behaviours associated with driver inattention with respect to their perceived crash risks, rates of self-reported behaviours and whether drivers regulate such behaviours depending on the road and traffic environment.

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.
