  • Do the test....

    So I saw these comments on another thread:

The hazard perception test is a small step in the right direction but there has to be something in there about looking for bikes - isn't the main cause of motorcycle accidents that the drivers brain is conditioned to look for cars (not motorbikes), and when one isn't seen they pull out (whether there's a motorbike there or not)

    I didn't want to comment in that thread, because it is about a recent rather nasty fatality and I didn't want to continue an argument there.

    However it occurred to me that there might be some value in posting a link to this site Online Testing & Learning, Links which has an awarness test about half way down the page.

    I would ask that anyone who has seen the test not discuss it, as this tends to reduce it's effectiveness.

    If you haven't seen it before, do the test. You will likely be surprised at your lack of ability.

        How a non-motorcycle rider could miss a Hysong riding amongst a bunch of Ducatis of the same colour?

          Apparently the test can't be completed with a gympie.

            This is even scarier and was allegedly developed to show fighter pilots why they need to move their heads when in flight to be fully aware of their surroundings.

            If you just stare straight at the green dot without moving your head the yellow dots disappear. If you constantly move your head, they do not.

            When brain dead morons drive in la-la land this is what happens and why you should be on full alert.

              Yeah, similar sort of idea. Your brain has evolved to filter out stuff that it doesn't consider important and it does this automatically without you realising it. Trouble is just because you are looking doesn't mean you are seeing. Once you know this you can take steps to combat it.

                It's not that people don't share your passion for this subject, it's just that this is reeeeeaaaaaaaallllllly old and most have seen it many times before. Besides, the gorilla one was much better than this one.
