About the research

Do you ever feel overloaded with information when you drive by a digital sign displaying traffic information on a highway? Nora Reinolsmann (Universiteit Hasselt) investigates the impact of these displays, called Variable Message Signs, on our driving behaviour. Do they really help us to better respond to a driving situation ahead?
