This unique edited collection derives from an international workshop uniting experts from the transport industry, legislators and research workers. The text focuses on issues from fatigue and their impact on performance and safety. Fatigue and Driving provides an overview of the individual and organisational perspectives of the problem including its many causes and consequences. Transport drivers describe their real-life experience of fatigue and how they identify and manage it; transport managers discuss the demands and constraints on their industry; researchers discuss their current research methodologies and the use of driving simulators.
