How Speed Effects Reaction Time – Florida Traffic School Online Course

How Speed Effects Reaction Time

 
How Speed Effects Reaction Time is defined as the time it takes to see a danger until the time it takes to avoid that danger. Your reaction time to stimulus can differ according to the stimulus. If you see a big spider on your arm, your reaction time will be faster than if it’s a little spider on your arm.
 
How speed effects reaction time – it usually takes the average driver between one and one and a half seconds to visually acknowledge and then act on any given situation. It is estimated that a two second interval provides the driver time to steer and brake out of problems at speeds up to 35 mph in the best driving conditions on a dry surface. If you are traveling at 70 mph it would take approximately 3 seconds to rectify your situation.
 
This is the order of events.
How Speed Effects Reaction Time
• You see the potential problem, then your brain has to process the information there goes 1 to one and a half seconds.
• Then your brain has to send a reaction to your limbs to take evasive action.
• Which finally waits for your vehicle to respond there goes another 2 to 3 seconds.
 
Depending on the speed your vehicle is traveling it takes a total of 3 to 4 and half seconds for you to satisfactorily rectify a driving quandary. Remember these figures are based on pristine driving conditions. If you are traveling at a speed of 60 mph you will be traveling at about eighty-eight feet per second on a dry surface on a clear day. At four seconds you would have travelled more distance than a football field. Thats over one hundred yards or over three hundred feet.
