Evaluation of a New Approach to Training Hazard Anticipation Skills of Young Drivers

Recent work with hazard anticipation training shows promise in improving novice drivers' perception of specific roadway hazards. Several approaches that use some form of guided error training successfully increase novice drivers' detection of roadway risks. This project will develop and evaluate an alternative training method (sRAPT)that may improve upon the effectiveness of training or reduce the costs of providing the training without reducing training effects.
