Drug Users and Driving Behaviors. Research Issues 20.
Austin, Gregory A., Ed.; And Others
A major factor in the American public's concern over unconventional drug use is its effect on traffic safety. This volume contains summaries of the latest experimental and epidemiological research on the interactions between drugs and driving behaviors. The experimental studies deal with the effects of drugs and cognition, coordination, reaction time, and other psychomotor functions, all of which are related to driving performances. (Author)
