SOME PRELIMINARY HYPOTHESES ON THE RELATION OF FIELD APPROACH TO DRIVING BEHAVIOR

This report relates knowledge about the influence of field approach (ie., field dependence vs. field independence) on behavior to knowledge and questions about driver behavior and driving environment. The aim is to propose areas of research which will improve understanding of the human factors contributing to accidents and violations, and thereby to help prevent accidents through screening, training, and retraining. The report addresses the influence of field approach on (1) driver behavior in general; (2) accident-producing and violation-incurring driving behavior; and (3) training and retraining opportunities for producing better drivers.
