Following results are obtained that when the novice drivers encounter the oncoming vehicles, they fixate the vehicles at higher rate than the conflict objects and induce the traffic conflicts. In case of no oncoming vehicles, they also induce the conflicts because their strategies of visual search are critically concerned with the vehicle's direction of travel. They cause other traffic conflicts because it is difficult for them to maintain their vehicle on the correct lane position.
