Research on driver behaviour over the past three decades has
clearly demonstrated that the goals and motivations a driver brings
to the driving task are important determinants for driver
behaviour.The objective of the book, and of the International
Conference on Driver Behaviour and Training on which it is based,
is to describe and discuss recent advances in the study of driving
behaviour and driver training. It bridges the gap between
practitioners and theoreticians investigating driving behaviour,
from a number of different perspectives and related disciplines.A
major focus is to consider how driver training needs to be adapted
to take into account individual differences, in order to raise
awareness of how these may contribute to unsafe driving behaviour.
From this it goes on to promote the development of driver training
courses that consider all the skills that are essential for road
safety. The effect of road environment and in-vehicle technology is
also debated with reference to driver responses.The book is timely
in its aim of defining new approaches to improving road safety
based on many years of empirical research on driver behaviour. The
contributing researchers and professionals are encouraged to
consider the applications of their work for reducing the risk of
crash involvement, with a strong emphasis on driver training.The
readership includes researchers from a variety of different
academic backgrounds, practitioners from regulatory authorities,
vehicle manufacturers and organisations concerned with improving
