IN THE FIRST PART OF THE RESEARCH REPORT THE QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE RELATIONS BETWEEN INFORMATION PROCESSING AND TRAFFIC ENGINEERING FACTORS IN THE "CROSSING" SITUATION ARE DESCRIBED. IT IS ESTABLISHED THAT THE MAXIMUM ACTIVITY WHICH TAKES PLACE IN THE SITUATION "CROSSING A ROAD WHICH HAD PRIORITY" IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA OF THE CROSSING CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED BY AUTOMATIC AIDS TO DRIVERS. FROM THE STUDIES OF VISUAL AND DECISION BEHAVIOUR IT CAN BE DEDUCED THAT ALLOWING STOPPING AND PARKING WITHIN THE AREA OF THE JUNCTION ALWAYS AT THE SAME DISTANCE FROM THE EDGE IS NOT VERY SENSIBLE. THE SECOND PART DESCRIBES THE DEVELOPMENT AND EXPERIMENTAL TESTING OF A PROCEDURE FOR MEASURING THE STRESS ON DRIVERS CAUSED BY INFORMATION LOADING; THE PROCEDURE USES THE SIZE OF THE USEFUL VISUAL FIELD AS AN INDICATOR.
