To examine the effect of experience on the accuracy of travel time estimation, we compared the skilled drivers with the unskilled drivers in the estimation of time for turning across opposite traffic. In the experiment, the drivers made turn across opposite traffic at T-junction, and driving time was recorded. Estimations of driving time were also recorded before or after driving. We found that (a) the difference between driving time and the estimation of it was smaller for the skilled drivers than the unskilled drivers, (b) there was no significant difference between the estimations of driving time before and after actual driving. These results indicate that experience makes the estimation of driving time accurate.
