From the Back Cover:

The Handbook of Traffic Psychology is a comprehensive manual to traffic psychology's issues, methods, populations, and countermeasures.  Representing an interdisciplinary perspective from psychology, engineering, political science, and public health, the book summarizes recent research findings in six key areas vital to traffic psychology.  With contributors representing 12 countries on five continents, the book explores 1) theories, concepts, and methods; 2) key variables to understand in traffic psychology; 3) key problem behaviors; 4) vulnerable and problem road users; 5) major countermeasures to reduce risk; and 6) interdisciplinary issues.

From distracted drivers to fatigue and impaired driving, the Handbook tells us what causes the most menace on the roads, how we cope with it as a society, and what more needs to be done.  The Handbook discusses how drivers cope with the demands of driving, from visual search patterns to human factor considerations, as well as how our personalities and neuroscience all play a role in reactions and behaviors.  Special attention is also given to those populations most at risk for harm on our roadways.

The Handbook is for serious scholars of the field as well as for those beginning its study.  It can be used for a graduate course on traffic psychology as well as a reference to researchers.

Special Features

  • Covers what methods are best to study what problems and how to conduct these methods in the field
  • Encompasses both theory and real-world situations and how the theories are borne out
  • Contains interdisciplinary perspectives from psychology, engineering, political science, and public health
  • Maintains a global view with contributors from 12 countries
  • Discusses factors that both provoke and assist drivers
  • Includes research on problem drivers and enforcement and education solutions
