Lane closures, accidents or bad weather are all potential hazards faced by motorway drivers. The presence of these is communicated to drivers by the police via matrix signals. Compliance and therefore the usefulness of these signals as a means of communication depends upon driver attitudes to the operation and consistent use of them by the controlling authority. This paper reports the results of a study whose objective was to determine the effectiveness of the matrix signalling system as a means of controlling drivers by establishing the attitudes and responses to them of motorway users.
