THE REACTION TIME OF VEHICLE DRIVERS ON MOTORWAYS

DIE REAKTIONSZEIT VON KRAFTFAHRZEUGFUEHRERN AUF AUTOBAHNEN

In 1976 and 1977 data were collected on motorways of the German Democratic Republic, the Peoples Republic of Hungary and the USSR to investigate the perception of road conditions by vehicle drivers. The data obtained were evaluated with respect to the dependence of the important psycho-physiological parameters of the vehicle driver on journey length, the time gap between vehicles driving one behind the other and other factors. From this, conclusions were drawn concerning driving behaviour, reaction time and the reliability of the driver on a motorway. (TRRL)
