A Realistic Approach to Automobile Accident Avoidance Training 770802
A different approach to training automobile accident avoidance driving skills is being developed. It is structured to provide students the opportunity to practice selecting and implementing effective crash avoidance strategies in response to realistic conflict situations that often precede actual accidents. Two new teaching techniques have been developed to provide this realistic experience in dealing with both single-car (the student driver's) and two-car situations. These techniques are used to administer a seven-module driver training course that has also just been developed.
