To establish if there is a change in reaction time when travelling a long distance at a fixed speed on a motorway.
Measurement of reaction time in 24 subjects travelling at various speeds on a Swedish motorway for 200km.
- Reaction time appeared slower for subjects travelling at slower fixed speeds, than for those travelling faster.
Non-UK research (Sweden), but still applicable to UK-based motorway driving.
