Highway safety. Identifying and coping with the impaired driver

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The purpose of this symposium is to present a sample of some of the recent highway safety research concerned with the impaired driver, and then discuss that research by (a) placing these studies within the larger scope of the problem, and (b) reviewing some additional recent research in the area. The major issues addressed in the individual presentations include (1) Detecting the impaired driver by using behavioral tests and physiological measures, (2) Applying statistical decision theory to change the probabilities of 'correct detections' and 'false alarms' by trained police officers and (3) Evaluating human-factors based engineering changes in the roadway environment to aid the impaired driver.
