Item description for Forensic Aspects of Driver Perception and Response, Second Edition by Paul L. Olson...

A significant advance over the previous edition, this title contains new information you need to know about driver perception and response.

While the basic subject matter--driver perception and perception-response time--remains the same, chapters have been added that cover in greater depth material that was briefly mention in the first edition. Additional chapters present completely new material on the topics of driver eye movements and visual attention.

Driver Perception and Response pulls together the available information on two primary themes: what a driver could (or should) have seen and how long he or she takes to respond in an emergency situation.
