Mental models and attentional processes in car driving

Publikation: Beiträge in SammelwerkenAufsätze in KonferenzbändenForschung


In Germany about thirty percent of traffic accidents per year are caused by young, inexperienced drivers. Besides the fact that younger drivers tend to underestimate dangers and risks (eg Brown, Groeger and Biehl, 1988; Fuller 1988), young drivers may be less skilled and knowledgeable simply because of their lack of training and experience. From the psychological point of view raising experience in car driving has the following consequences: automation of cognitive control and motor processes; enhancement of the state of knowledge about various traffic situations.
