Time-to-line crossing (TLC) is developed to quantify the potential role of error-neglecting strategies in driving. In this paper, TLC is applied to describe steering through a curve. When entering a curve drivers make an anticipatory steering action based on the perceived road curvature and the internal estimate of the vehicle characteristics. This process was analyzed in a field study in which subjects entered curves of different curvatures, with different speeds and with/without temporary withdrawal of visual feedback. The TLC analysis appears particularly suited to describe the quality of the anticipatory steering action and may serve as a general description of curve driving.
