Abstract

A study is conducted which examined whether false alarms were ever ignored or counterproductive to behavior using a driving scenario. A questionnaire explained photo-radar and described a scenario of leaving for the airport late. Results indicate that repeated false alarms decrease self-protective behavior to a point suggesting that the warnings are eventually ignored. Although these results did not suggest that false alarms lead to counterproductive behavior, additional warning repetitions may produce such an effect.
