THE INVESTIGATION PROVIDED THE FOLLOWING RESULTS: "EXPERIENCED" DRIVERS EXHIBIT A DIFFERENT VISUAL BEHAVIOUR BETWEEN THE TRAVERSING OF A RIGHT-HAND AND A LEFT-HAND BEND - THEIR AVERAGE VIEW-FIXATION PERIOD AND THE BREADTH OF SPAN IS LONGER OR GREATER FOR THE LEFT-HAND BEND THAN FOR THE RIGHT-HAND, WHILST "INEXPERIENCED" DRIVERS EXHIBIT NO DIFFERENCE IN THEIR VISUAL BEHAVIOUR. WHEN APPROACHING A BLIND RIGHT-HAND CURVE THE VISUAL BEHAVIOUR CHANGES. THE AVERAGE VIEW FIXATION PERIOD DIMINISHES FROM THE STRETCH IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE BEND, COMPARED WITH A SECTION OF ROAD WHICH HAS EARLIER BEEN TRAVERSED.
