Assisting 'at risk' tourist road users in Australia

Wilks, Jeffrey & Watson, Barry C. (2000) Assisting 'at risk' tourist road users in Australia. Travel Medicine International, 18(3), pp. 88-93.

Abstract

With the approach of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games there is growing interest in the health and safety of international visitors to Australia. This study identifies German, English, American and Japanese tourists as possible 'at risk' groups on Australian roads. Strategies to specifically assist these visitors are suggested. The development of country-specific health and safety profiles for travellers is also discussed.

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.
