Abstract: 

The purpose of this study was to compare the function of attention in two groups of high risk drivers and normal ones. Using simple random sampling, 50 high risk male drivers were selected whose cars or licentiates have been taken by traffic staff in Tehran, 2011. Also, in control group, 50 male drivers were selected who had no violations in their records. Attention function of the two groups was measured by continuous performance test. The findings of the analysis of covariance illustrated that in function of attention there was a significant difference between high risk and normal drivers. In commission error, omission error and reaction time indexes high risk drivers had higher scores than normal drivers (P<0.01). While in correct detection normal drivers had higher scores than high risk drivers (P<0.01). The findings demonstrated that there were significant differences between high risk and normal drivers in the function of attention.
