INFLUENCING DRIVER BEHAVIOR THROUGH CLASSROOM FILMS

THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT THE STUDENT WOULD RECALL MORE OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN A TRAFFIC SAFETY FILM IF THAT INFORMATION WERE PRESENTED JUST BEFORE OR JUST AFTER THE STUDENT'S SKIN RESISTANCE DECREASED (GSR). SINCE GSR CAN BE INDUCED IN MANY EXCITING EVENTS, TRAFFIC SAFETY FILMS WHICH ARE INTENDED TO TEACH INFORMATION SHOULD SCHEDULE THAT INFORMATION AT EXCITING PORTIONS OF THE FILM. FILMS SHOULD BE DEVELOPED WHICH WOULD INFLUENCE SPECIFIC DRIVING BEHAVIOR AND THEY SHOULD BE TESTED BY USING HOMOGENOUS GROUPS. /FHWA/
