Re: hazard perception

Hi Jan
I have found over the years with PDI's that the main problem is caused by a slight misunderstanding of what is being tested. It is NOT a reaction test it IS a test of perception, don't wait untill you have to react to the developing hazard click it as soon as you see somthing that MAY cause you to change either speed or direction, just as you would check the mirrors when driving, then I would give a second click a second or two later just in case it was a little to early and remember there is always more that one developing hazard in each clip so you need to try to get them all.
Good luck Cliff

Re: hazard perception

I used the Focus all tests disc where scoring can be reviewed. You only score for developing hazards ie when you have to change speed or direction, so spot the hazard early and click three times but dont click excessively or your score for that clip will be void.

Re: hazard perception

What does the DSA have in place in a person cannot see depth (3D) on a flat (2D) screen unless the frame stays still for a few seconds?

Nothing ... hard cheese ... tough luck !!
