Road user hazardperception tests: a systematicreview of current methodologies

Hazard perception has been linked to crash risk with novice/younger road users poorer at hazard perception than experienced/older road users. Hazard perception testing is included in many licensing systems. This systematic review synthesises studies of hazard perception test methodologies in order to determine best practice. A search resulted in 48 studies that contained a hazard perception test methodology (video, static image, simulator, test-drive) and discriminated between road users (car drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians) based on age and/or experience. Despite a high degree of heterogeneity, results suggest current driver hazard perception testing could be enhanced, with specific recommendations made for motorcyclists and vulnerable road users.
