Traffic Safety is a fascinating book that will become a valuable reference and resource for researchers and professionals working in the traffic safety area.  Evans has provided a comprehensive review and synthesis of the most recent materials.  He has covered a variety of topics ranging from traffic safety terminology, data sources, vehicle characteristics, driver characteristics, performance and behavior, impact of older drivers, and alcohol, to measures to improve traffic safety.  He has included some great stories and has made extensive use of tables and graphs to illustrate data and concepts.  Evans has drawn examples from around the world to provide an international perspective on traffic safety.  It is truly an enjoyable and easy book to read. 

Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.
