Suggested Comparisons

  1. At this speed on a dry road, a driver who was using a mobile phone or who had been drinking, would hit the pedestrian. Re-run the simulator, and select mobile phone use or drink driving to see how this changes the result.
  2. Wet weather increases braking distances. Re-run the simulator, and select wet weather, to see how much the braking distance increases, and how this changes the result.
