On Thursday 19 January Professor David Crundall gave an inaugural lecture on ‘Eye movements and hazard perception: How applying cognitive psychology can save lives’.

David is an internationally recognised expert on traffic and transport psychology with over 65 peer-reviewed articles in the field. He gained his PhD in Experimental Psychology in 1999 and has since received over £3 million in funding from various sources including UK Research Councils, government agencies, charities and commercial sponsors.

David is a member of the UK Parliamentary Advisory Council on Transport Safety, the Transport Psychology International and International Association of Applied Psychologists.

David discussed a number of studies that he has conducted over the last two decades that demonstrate the importance of understanding where people look when they drive and how this has contributed to our understanding of a driver’s hazard perception skills.

David concluded that the current national hazard perception test in the UK is inadequate for discriminating safe and unsafe drivers in a variety of settings.
