Editorial Reviews

Science and Justice
Vision constitutes about 95% of the sensory input whilst driving a motor vehicle. Despite this obvious fact, limited vision per se seems to contribute little to the accident rate of vehicles. This book is an overview of many subjects relating to vision and driving. The authors are all optometrically trained and all have experience in the practical methods of assessing the driver and his visual ability to drive his vehicle safely through the ever increasing traffic of our roads . This book does provide a useful guide to all aspects of vision and driving safety. Its bibliography is excellent and will provide the reader, of whatever specialty, guidance for further reading.
Booknews
Correcting built-in safety hazards that obstruct drivers' vision<-->on the streets and in vehicles<-->would eliminate at least half of the deaths, injuries, and costs associated with motor vehicle accidents, say Allen (professor emeritus of optometry, Indiana U.) and his co- authors. They provide a battery of statistics and information on the visual aspects of driving for optometrists, highway engineers, legislators, manufacturers, law enforcement personnel, and attorneys. "Good vision alone is not enough to drive a motor vehicle," Allen writes. "It is the myriad of other factors that makes the job of the scientist so difficult when he tries to prove the degree to which vision affects driving. This book will give the reader a greater appreciation of the complexities of the problem as well as some recommendations about what can be done to reduce accidents." Foreword by Ralph Nader.
