Detecting Approaching Vehicles at Streets with No Traffic Control
Emerson, Robert Wall; Sauerburger, Dona
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v102 n12 p747-760 Dec 2008
This study assessed the ability of people with visual impairments to reliably detect oncoming traffic at crossing situations with no traffic control. In at least one condition, the participants could not hear vehicles to afford a safe crossing time when sound levels were as quiet as possible. Significant predictors of detection accounted for a third of the variation in the detection time. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
