THE PERCEPTIBILITY OF COLORED ROADWAY MARKINGS /IN GERMAN/

TO BE EFFICIENT ROADWAY MARKINGS MUST BE CLEAR AND EASY TO SPOT. PSYCHOMETRIC AND TECHNICAL METHODS HAVE BEEN USED FOR ASSESSING THEIR PERCEPTIBILITY. FOR PRACTICAL TESTING A ROAD MODEL WAS BUILT IN WHICH THE COLOR AND THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE ROADWAY AND THE MARKINGS COULD BE VARIED. PERCEPTIBILITY CONSISTS OF THE INTERACTION OF THE COMPONENTS OF THE ROADWAY AND THE BRIGHTNESS AND COLOR OF THE MARKINGS. DARK STREETS REQUIRE A BRIGHT CONTRAST AND BRIGHT ROADS A COLOR CONTRAST. IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE TO ESTABLISH A SCALE FOR PERCEPTIBILITY IT WOULD REQUIRE A MULTI- DIMENSIONAL SCALE, WHICH COULD NOT BE PRODUCED IN THIS RESEARCH. /TRRL/
