The Human Factors of Transport Signs


Effective transport signs can organize the overload of visual information that impinges on drivers' senses. The Human Factors of Transport Signs is an easily-accessible information source for professionals who design these signs. By exploring new technologies that are revolutionizing signaling, the authors help ensure that the signs don't become stimuli that only increase traffic confusion. Although the text concentrates largely on the road environment and general signing issues, it also addresses specific railway and other transport modality signing issues. It covers driver psychology and interaction of transport signs as well as the strengths and problems of different types of signs.
