An experimental program to identify the relationship between visibility conditions and operator performance is discussed. Average speed in negotiating a controlled course is taken as the measure of operator performance. The method to measure visibility is discussed. It is shown that despite use of a contrived test course and artificially reduced visibility, the results appear valid. It is also shown that the relationship between visibility conditions and average speed can be represented with a simple, second order equation.
