Examining Driver Behavior in Response to Work Zone Interventions: A Driving Simulator StudyAuthor/Presenter: Reyes, Michelle L.; Khan, Sameer A.;
Construction zones pose a significant threat to both workers and drivers causing numerous injuries and deaths each year. Innovations in work zone safety could reduce these numbers. However, implementing work zone interventions before they are validated can undermine rather than enhance safety. The objective of this research is to demonstrate how driving simulators can be used to evaluate the effect of various work zone interventions on driver performance.
