Some research papers on the contemporary use of simulation in traffic psychology studies are presented. Crundall, and Chapman (2011) examined hazard detection using video images on a desk-top, in a driving simulator and also on-road. Charlton and Starkey (2011) presented a paper that addressed an issue that is fundamental to experimental research, on how driving performance changes with practice and how can we account for this. Ohlhauser and Caird (2011), extending this work, reported on a study examining the role of cognitive conspicuity, manipulated through prior riding experience, on driver interactions with PTWs. Birrell and Young (2011) acknowledged the importance of encouraging environmentally friendly practices in the transport system. Salmon et al. (2011) examined the influence of motion on the use of a touchscreen in-vehicle device, finding that higher levels of motion were associated with inferior performance and higher workload.
