Motorscooter Braking Control Response Study 2000-01-0180

The purpose of this study was to conduct an initial examination of the effect of two different motorscooter brake control configurations on operator braking response time. The method was a basic laboratory response time test of light stimulus to brake control activation using stationary vehicles. Operator braking response times were longer for a hand lever front brake/ foot pedal rear brake configuration than for a hand lever front brake/ hand lever rear brake configuration.
