Theme page 14. The DSB, the TSB and driving skill and traffic safety

To be able to control a vehicle the driver has to be able to react quickly with the muscles guided by keen sight. In heavy traffic and bad (weather/road) circumstances the good cooperation of the senses becomes even more important. The bad influence of  the DSB is obvious at least in the following cases.

  • To study and learn the theory for driving skills is difficult.
  • Passing the theoretical test is difficult because of misunderstanding the written questions, excitement or slow recalling of the subject matter of the course.
  • Difficulty with simultaneous actions when controlling the vehicle during the driving practice: hard to follow the route, other traffic and traffic signs simultaneously with using  control levers  in the vehicle, which may be clumsy and slow or hasty.
  • To perceive directions, space and distances is difficult.
  • Difficult to see through the fringes of the visual field.
  • Difficulty with the cooperation of the eyes and hands or the eyes and feet and with recalling the instructions.
  • The body gets tensed and the eyes get easily tired when driving, especially in heavy traffic and/or bad circumstances with bad lighting and weather.
  • The worsened driving skills of an aged driver.
  • A risky way of driving: e.g. over speeding, dangerous over takings, drunken driving and other offences.

Traffic is "a scene" where people with a healthy or treated sense of balance can act and survive better in any circumstances with quick, accurate and appropriate reactions.
