Educational effects of experiencing one's own driving behavior from the perspective of another vehicle―Aiming to improve appropriate meta-cognition―
I wonder how often people experience subconsciously stepping on the brakes and breaking in a cold sweat in an attempt to dodge on-street parking cars, left-turners, pedestrians, bicycles, etc. while driving on a single-lane road. What would the driver of an oncoming vehicle feel once he sees his heart-racing driving (without knowing that he is the driver of the said vehicle) from the perspective of other cars? Furthermore, the degree of the educational effect of such an experience will be clarified through a driving simulator experiment.
