A major concern in allowing the tinting of car front side windows to 35% visible light transmittance (VLT) is that tasks performed through these windows often require the rapid detection of low-contrast, unilluminated targets. If the tinting interferes with detection of targets then road safety may be compromized. Speed of cognitive and visual processing declines with age; performance on backward pattern masking tasks can indicate this slowing in processing speed. Two experiments compared...[Show more]
