A two-year investigation of the effects of carboxyhemoglobin on human performance involved the testing of 40 subjects on the highway with a battery of real driving situations and/or laboratory tasks related to driving skills. In all, 24 tasks were developed and over 130,000 observations were taken. Driving performance was categorized into three levels: visual perception and information acquisition, control (psychomotor), and dynamic response.
