Road safety and international visitors in Australia: looking beyond the tip of the iceberg
Wilks, Jeffrey & Watson, Barry C. (1998) Road safety and international visitors in Australia: looking beyond the tip of the iceberg. Travel Medicine International, 16(5), pp. 194-198.
Motor vehicle crashes consistently emerge from the travel medicine literature as the most common cause of injury and death for tourists. Yet there has been very little empirical research into the factors contributing to such crashes, and even less attention to the social and economic consequences of non-fatal crashes among tourists. Some reasons are offered for this neglected area of travel medicine, and Australian data is presented to illustrate the scale of the issue.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
