CAN ACCIDENTS BE PREDICTED. AN EMPIRICAL TEST OF THE COGNITIVE FAILURES QUESTIONNAIRE. (REANNOUNCEMENT WITH NEW AVAILABILITY INFORMATION)
A total of 159 young men filled out a questionnaire designed to assess the frequency of various common mental slips. Their responses were then compared with the driving records of the respondents. Those subjects reporting more mental slips were also more likely to have caused traffic accidents, but the relationship only emerged following exclusion of those subjects with remarkably bad driving records. In a second group of 152 men, questionnaire responses again differentiated those subjects who had caused accidents from those who had not.
