Comparative research on the optical and acoustic psychomotor reaction of professional drivers

The results of the optical reactions of professional drivers of two age groups (41–50 years old and 51–60 years old) were analyzing in this article. The occurrence of a traffic accident frequently depends on how promptly and whether correctly or not a decision is made in an emergency situation, and on how quickly such decision is brought to life by the driver. Most of the study results show that a driver’s reaction time ranges from 0.4 to 1.5 seconds. Regrettably, the average reaction time is not a steady and invariable value even in case of the same driver. The average reaction time is influenced by a number of factors. Some of these factors may be improved while others depend on the driver’s personal body condition.
