Roadcraft is the official Police Driver's Handbook, approved by the Association of Chief Police Officers, and is used by the police service to train police drivers, but it is useful for any driver wishing to improve their skills and safety to a more advanced level. Roadcraft aims to help people become better drivers by increasing awareness of all factors that affect driving, such as the capability of the driver, characteristics of the vehicle, and road and traffic conditions. This new edition has been prepared in close consultation with a working group of senior police driving instructors and other police and civilian advance driver training experts. It has been updated to reflect recent changes in the legislative framework surrounding driving and emergency response driving and new methodologies in teaching safe driving. It now also incorporates information on automotive engineering advances such as ABS and SatNav devices and their effect on driving. A new chapter has been added to teach drivers the physical and psychological aspects of driving and how to develop mental skills to become a better driver.

Despite a growing body of research and targeted remediation, teenage and novice drivers continue to be six to nine times more likely to die in a crash than they are when they are just a few years older. The World Health Organization reports that road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death globally among 15 to 19 year olds. In light of these crash statistics, understanding the teen driver problem remains of paramount public health importance around the world. The Handbook of Teen and Novice Drivers: Research, Practice, Policy, and Directions provides critical knowledge for a broad range of potential readers, including students, teachers, researchers in academics, industry and the federal government, public policy makers at all levels, insurance companies and automobile manufacturers, driving instructors, and parents and their teens.

Fleetcraft is a driver training manual aimed at the occupational driver. Health and safety legislation now requires employers to address the risks associated with work-related vehicle usage, and driver training is one solution being adopted. Much of the material is derived from Roadcraft, the manual used for advanced police driver training. This handbook covers many aspects of driving, including attitude and behaviour, both of which are seen as essential for road safety and an effective driver development programme.

Etwa fünfzig Kilometer vom südwestlichsten Zipfel von Cornwall entfernt liegen die Scilly-Inseln. Wunderschöne Gärten, Sonnenuntergänge unter Palmen, ein weiter Blick aufs Meer: Die Inselgruppe mitten im Atlantik ist ein wahres Idyll. Und Sergeant Colin Taylor der Mann, der entschlossen einschreitet, wenn die Luft brennt – egal, ob ein Streit zwischen angeheiterten Küchenchefs oder erhitzten Pub-Besuchern entflammt oder jemand einen wuchtigen Anker wegzuschleppen versucht. Auch bei den durchschnittlich drei gestohlenen Fahrrädern im Jahr bleibt der lustige Polizist entspannt, denn: „Wirklich weit kommt man mit dem Diebesgut ja sowieso nicht.“ Mit hinreißendem britischem Witz und Charme schreibt der Scilly Sergeant über seine Abenteuer als Insel-Bobby.

Cognitive Processes in Eye Guidance

Whether reading, looking at a picture, or driving, how is it that we know where to look next - how does the human visual system calculate where our gaze should be directed in order to achieve our cognitive aims? Of course, there is an interaction between the decisions about where we shouldlook and about how long we should look there. However, our eyes do not just move randomly over the visual field - whether we are reading, driving, or solving a problem. There are systematic variations not only in the duration of each eye fixation, but also in what we are looking at. It is thesevariations in eye movements that can tell us much about the cognitive processes involved in the performance of these activities. Within reading research, great progress has already been made in understanding these processes and there are now a number of competing and well-formed models. In someother areas of perception, the development of formal theories and the search for critical evidence is less advanced. This book brings together leading vision scientists studying eye movements across a range of activities, such as reading, driving, computer activities, and chess. It providesgroundbreaking new research that will help us understand how it is that we know where to move our eyes, and thereby better understand the cognitive processes underlying these activities.

Wir alle kennen es: Man hält an einer Entscheidung fest, obwohl deutlich absehbar ist, dass sie falsch ist. Schlimmer noch, man ignoriert alle Warnungen, verpasst die Gelegenheit, die Katastrophe abzuwenden und steuert sogar noch direkt in sie hinein. Ein unerklärliches Verhalten? Mitnichten, sagen Ori und Rom Brafman.
