What is Driver Conditioning?

Driver Conditioning is the underlying cause of nearly all vehicular crashes.

Driver Conditioning is defined as the process through which drivers become conditioned to respond to traffic patterns and road conditions that remain consistent over an undefined period of time or distance.

Motorists

benefit by learning about Driver Conditioning, what causes it, and how it can be prevented. Knowledge of this naturally occurring phenomenon could easily diminish the effects of Driver Conditioning, making highway travel safer for everyone. 

Highway Officials

benefit by learning how a simple modification to current procedures can enhance their ability to identify, analyze, and correct highway locations known to be, or that have a potential to become, dangerous.
