DRIVER VISIBILITY UNDER VARYING ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS

This report presents abridged versions of several papers that were given at an earlier symposium on the subject of driving under adverse visibility conditions. Topics covered include among others: safe driving in fog, international efforts in solving reduced visibility problems, Wyoming's experience with reduced visibility, fog research in Oregon, visibility in blowing snow, improving the conspicuity of highway-rail grade crossing signals, and Arizona's dust signing system. A summary of the major topics covered are highlighted, as well as a summary of the necessary steps for dealing successfully with limited visibility conditions. Finally, a listing of research topics felt to be necessary to shed further light on limited visibility conditions is presented.
