DRIVERS' VISUAL BEHAVIOR WITH DOOR AND FENDER MIRROR SYSTEMS
This study investigates the drivers' visual behavior in obtaining information through door and fender mirror systems. The novice and experienced drivers had no differences in their pattern of eye-head coordination in mirror glance behavior. Both door and fender mirror systems on the right (driver) side appeared to have no differences for the novice and experienced drivers. However, the response time for the left (passenger) door mirror glance of the novice drivers was longer than that of the experienced drivers. This may be attributed to the location of the left door mirror which makes an angle over 70 degrees to the straight ahead of the drivers. Left fender mirror, rather than left door mirror, would be recommended for the novice drivers.
