Measured ability of observers to identify illuminated objects on roadway
When object was straight ahead
  74% saw the object                       
  Only 23% responded to it            
When object was to the right of the driver
  2o% saw the object                     
  Only 14% responded to it           
Study fits with the SEEV model & Information Theory
ABOUT CRASH SAFETY RESEARCH 
Specializing in Teaching Human Factors in Crash Reconstruction
CSRC Background

Crash Safety Research Center (CSRC), LLC is known for its scientific research related to driver, rider and pedestrian response (human response to traffic). We have conducted research in our laboratory, in the field, on a driving simulator and in the form of case study research in an effort to learn more about how drivers’ responses change in various circumstances. When asked to perform a case study, after a thorough analysis of a driver’s response, we compare the performance of the driver to the manner in which others have performed when faced with a similar situation. The case study is then used to further our research efforts in order to better understand the factors that change drivers’ responses. Armed with hundreds of research studies, and our own research, CSRC, LLC also provides education in crash cause analysis and human factors in traffic crashes.

With more than 20 years of experience, our crash reconstruction work has survived intense scrutiny during depositions, discussions and trials. Dr. Muttart has been recognized as an "Expert Witness" in Superior Courts in several states. This is primarily because Dr. Muttart believes (as does the U.S. Supreme Court in its rulings) that his opinions should be obtained using accepted scientific methods. To achieve this, we conduct independent research and obtain additional training on a yearly basis. Our integrity does not stop with establishing a proper scientific methodology for our conclusions. We also believe in giving our clients an honest assessment of how a collision occurred and a fair amount of work for their money.
About Dr. Jeffrey Muttart

Since 1983, Dr. Muttart has reconstructed more than 1,000 motor vehicle accidents for both plaintiff and defense counsel. He has worked cases or lectured in 40 states and four countries. He has testified regarding issues in the following crash reconstruction related topics such as but not limited to:

Human Factors influencing driver and pedestrian response
Anthropometric traits of driver response in motor vehicle crashes
Pedestrian accidents, Bicycle Collisions, and Motorcycle accidents
Analysis of seat belt restraint system usage and application
Time and distance (spatial relationship) calculations
Speed determination from skid marks, vaults, momentum and vehicle crush analysis
Visual Attention
Visual conspicuity of hazards
Analysis of vehicle dynamics and damage
Analysis of vehicle dynamics and damage
Bulb and lamp examinations
Area of impact determinations
Vehicle avoidance issues
