VEHICLE BEHAVIOR ON CURVED SECTIONS OF ROADS

FAHRVERHALTEN VON KRAFTFAHRZEYGEN AUF KURVIGEN STRECKEN

This report did not approach vehicle behaviour on curved sections of roads solely from the viewpoint of highway and automobile technology, but included the work and findings of psychologists and doctors to set up a "man-vehicle-road model." Earlier studies determined that c. 65 percent of all traffic accidents on state highways occur on curved sections, but this report is the first attempt to view the driver as an information processing system and to relate the psychology of human perception to the ability to negotiate curves.
