TRAFFIC ENVIRONMENT AND THE DRIVER

This book adresses the question of whether there is a case for driver education, answers it in the affirmative and goes on to consider what kind of driver education would best serve the purpose of improving the safety on the roads. The role of the individual and the role of the traffic situation is discussed and an evaluation is presented of driving courses. The methodological issues involved in such evaluation and the criteria used for the purpose are discussed. Perceptual training, defensive driving and emergency training are covered, as well as methods of driver training and classroom instruction. The use of commentary driving and of instrument driving and of instrument assisted in-car training are considered. The use of training fields and multiple-car methods and simulators are discussed, and comments are made on the problems of classroom instruction and the use and preparation of verbal material. The relationship between the objectives of driver education and licensing are also discussed.
