Effect of distraction task on driving performance of experienced taxi drivers

or navigation system increases driver workload and influences the stress experienced by the driver. Such distractions activate the sympathetic nervous system and increase the heart rate and skin conductance level (SCL) of drivers [ 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 , 19 ]. Driving performance is influenced by a combination of human, vehicular, and environmental factors. Because of a flaw in one or more of these factors, accidents occur wherein the main cause is most often the human factor [ 20 ]. Accidents because of human factors occur when the driver is inexperienced or
