The risk for an accident during blue light driving compared to normal driving is significantly higher. A high number of accidents traces back to the driver. Especially with an increasing number of operations road safety is an important goal. At the moment there is no uniform and standardized training course for drivers; however, the German Traffic Safety Council and the German Social Accident Insurance developed a one-day simulator-based training especially for blue light driving. Goal of our project is therefore a multi-method evaluation of this training on the levels of reaction, learning, behavior and results. If necessary, it is planned to develop potential improvements and to determine boundary conditions for training success.
To ensure generalizability of results, the trainings will be conducted by experienced trainers in the urban and rural areas of Munich and Dresden. The four evaluation levels will be tested with a Solomon experimental design:

mental stress factors, mechanical hazardsCatchwords:
