A ROAD SIGN FOR WARNING OF CLOSE-FOLLOWING: FORM AND MESSAGE DESIGN

A survey was made of the opinion of drivers on designs for a road sign which warns them of their close-following behaviour. A film simulating the operation beside the road of each design of sign was shown to 100 randomly selected drivers. An assessment of the questionnaires showed that, although no particular design was outstanding, two were generally acceptable. /Author/
