TESTING OF EMERGENCY AND EVASIVE ACTION DRIVING MANEUVERS

This paper describes methods for testing the level of evasive action driving skills exhibited by persons who take emergency and evasive action driver education, both before and after instruction. The instruction is based upon a modified curriculum, the original of which was developed by General Motors Corporation at the Milford, Michigan Proving Grounds. Although the maneuvers used for testing are based upon the curriculum employed by Eastern Illinois University, the Methodology is generalized and applicable to the same or slightly modified maneuvers. Pilot testing has been done with six drivers from Eastern Illinois University and twelve firemen from Springfield. Full scale testing will begin with two police training programs. As a result of the planned testing of approximately 80 drivers, further refinements will be made. /Author/
