Novo Mesto is a small town in the Slovenian countryside which is undergoing a new project of road safety. New traffic signals are to be placed in bus stops to give drivers awareness of children standing waiting for the bus. Our mission is to use an eye tracker (the Dikablis device by Ergoneers) to study the reaction of three test drivers against these new signals; if they do detect them or not and if they modify their driving behavior once noticed them. The methodology is to do a first test before the signal placements and another one after, and afterwards compare both situations. Results are satisfying, with high values of reliability, and make us think the new signals will be useful and will contribute to make the road a safer place for children.
