Road Safety Knowledge Centre

10 August 2011

A valuable research paper has been added to the Road Safety Knowledge Centre

An investigation of the role of vehicle conspicuity in the ‘Looked but failed to see’ error in driving : Martin Langham, University of Surrey (pre-2009).

After reviewing literature and assessing the diverse methods to investigate the LBFS error, this thesis refines previous methodologies. Conclusions suggest that experience need not mean expertise and that LBFS errors may be a cost of experience.
