Driver Behavior on Horizontal Curves Pilot Study

Project Information

Project ID:
FHWA-PROJ-11-0106
Project Abstract:

The minisimulator will be used to perform an experimental evaluation determining the effect that familiarity with roadway, inattention, being in a hurry, and other possible variables have on driver performance on rural two-lane roadways with horizontal curves.

Goals 

The key project objective is to gain a better understanding of critical precrash events occurring before run-off-road (ROR) crashes on rural two-lane roadways with horizontal curves.
