Driving Simulator Studies of the Effectiveness of Countermeasures to Prevent Wrong Way Crashes

Objectives of this research project include understanding the effectiveness of wrong way countermeasures with respect to younger and older drivers, provide insight into the decision-making process associated with entering a freeway using an exit ramp, and to provide recommendations based on the results of literature reviews and simulator studies to reduce the likelihood that impaired individuals and older drivers are involved in wrong way crashes.
