Filtness, A.J. & Reyner, L.A. (2010) Countermeasures to driver sleepiness : is the message getting through? In 24th Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, 5 - 9 June 2010, San Antonio, Tx. (Unpublished)

The most effective countermeasures to driver sleepiness (caffeine and a nap, ideally in combination) are not the most popular choice for UK drivers.

Groups susceptible to driver sleepiness (OSA patients and truck drivers) do not favour effective countermeasures to driver sleepiness.

Prior experience of driver sleepiness does not promote an effective choice of countermeasure.

Impact and interest:

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.
