Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Aberrant driving behaviour is a major concern for road safety. Numerous studies have shown that behaviours such as speeding and drink driving are strongly associated with accident involvement (eg Finch, Kompfner, Lockwood and Maycock, 1994; Parker, Reason, Manstead and Stradling, 1995b; Parker, West, Manstead and Stradling, 1995c; Stradling, 2000; Taylor, Lynam and Baruya, 2000). A large volume of research has therefore been carried out into aberrant driving behaviours to provide a better understanding of why they are carried out and how they can be changed to improve safety.
