Research interest into the role of vision in road safety has greatly increased over recent years. This has been stimulated by the limited understanding of how visual impairment affects driving ability and safety, a lack of strong evidence on which to base visual licensing standards for driving safety, together with a growing reliance on driving for maintaining mobility and independence, particularly in older populations. This special issue on ‘Vision and Road Safety’ highlights the multidisciplinary nature of research in this area, bringing together researchers from optometry, vision science, ophthalmology, psychology, epidemiology, neurology, neurobiology and engineering, thus demonstrating the breadth of research questions in this area. However, while the research questions associated with this topic area included in this special issue are wide ranging, we identify clusters of papers that address common questions but using different methodological approaches...

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are 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.
