Abstract

The article describes how specifically a road traffic scene is perceived by traffic participants. Every vehicle driver perceives a road traffic scene slightly differently, even though they are all obliged to follow a set of identical regulations. Normative (imposed by the law) behaviours of each driver are accompanied by other behaviours which, when combined, affect quality and safety of traffic. In both categories of behaviours, i.e. normative and other, there are differences that can and should be studied. On account of the broad range of problems, the article outlines selected aspects of the subject in question. The observations provided in the article are based on a study of vehicle drivers using an eye tracking device. Tests were performed near railway intersections. The observations discussed in the paper are of preliminary nature, which is due to the small size of the test sample resulting from the testing method used.
