A group of researchers from the University of Florida Transportation Institute (UFTI) is conducting a study to understand driver’s perception at signalized intersections. The purpose of this study is to identify the missing factors and/or information that can be provided to drivers to improve their driving experience at signalized intersections. This study is conducted by the University of Florida under the supervision of Pedro Adorno, a Ph.D. student at UFTI (Principal Investigator), and Dr. Sivaramakrishnan Srinivasa, Associate Professor of UFTI (Co-Investigator).

The success of this study depends on gathering diverse perspectives of drivers across the world, therefore your participation is key. By participating, you will be providing the University of Florida Transportation Institute (UFTI) with valuable information that will help improve traffic operations and drivers’ safety at signalized intersections.

The study consists of an online survey with different scenarios at signalized intersections. Participants are asked to react in each scenario as honest as possible, expressing their true emotions and perspectives. The survey was designed to last 20 -25 minutes. There is no risk involved in responding to this survey. There is no compensation for participating in the survey. However, if you are responding to the survey with a mobile device, remember not to do so under conditions where distractions could cause you or others harm.
