A driving simulation study was conducted that tested 97 drivers in two different types of work zones. Participants drove through these work zones three times, with a different messaging interface each time to communicate hazardous events to the driver. The interfaces included a roadside portable changeable message sign, a smartphone presenting only auditory messages, and a smartphone presenting audio-visual messages.
