By learning to spot the clues, an observer riding with a driver can identify habits of seeing and responding. Many business and industrial firms that operate large fleets of motor vehicles have put into use a system for checking in traffic the seeing and responding habits of their drivers and for explaining to them the steps they should practice to upgrade any habits that need improvement. This article explains a revised version of the habit check program which was developed 2 decades ago. Conclusions reached from follow-up contacts with fleet supervisors using the system are discussed. The seeing-responding process which is made up of 5 steps is reviewed. Notes are provided on conducting the habit check, and clues are provided to the driver's seeing and responding habits. The follow-up procedure after the habit check is also discussed.
