Abstract

Studies have shown that there is a definite tendency for a driver to lose in steering efficiency when he takes one hand off the wheel. Johnson and Lauer (1) found either hand alone to be 91.4 per cent as efficient in manipulative ability as both hands used together. Their findings were confirmed in a lesser degree by Lauer and Suhr (2) for both simple and complex driving. The present study was made to determine whether or not a loss in steering efficiency occurs when driving speed is increased.
