Research and Markets: Driver Behaviour and Training: Volume V


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Driver Behaviour and Training: Volume V" book to their offering.

Research on driver behaviour 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 conference 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 in road safety, and theoreticians investigating driving behaviour, from a number of different perspectives and related disciplines.

The book is timely in its aim of defining new approaches to driver training methodology based on decades of empirical research on driver behaviour. The contributing road safety researchers and professionals consider the kinds of methods that are effective in teaching drivers the higher-level skills needed to be a safe competent driver.

The readership includes road safety researchers from a variety of different academic backgrounds, senior practitioners in the field from regulatory authorities and professional driver training organisations such as the police service, and private and public sector personnel who are concerned with improving road safety.
