SUBJECTIVE VISUAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GEOMETRICALLY SIMILAR HIGH- AND LOW-ACCIDENT RURAL ROADWAY CURVES

This study investigated differences in drivers' visual perceptions of geometrically similar high- and low-accident curves on rural roads. Driving experience and the ability to recognize high-accident curves were found to be correlated. Driver, vehicle, and environmental characteristics are examined and used to develop an accident causation model based on the theory of signal detection. (Author)
