I have the reaction time of a 19 year old! (in a good way...)

I saw this on another forum and gave it a shot. Luckily, I was never as slow as my age would suggest. I tried if four times, worst case was 480ms, supposedly equivalent to a 40 yo.

That was fun. I tried 5 times most times I was in the 25-33 range but pulled off a not human 184ms once. Too bad most of the people we share the roads with probably have the reaction time of a 90 year old.

I don't think raw reaction time is that important compared to factors that determine how and when you perceive a hazard (eyesight, experience) and factors that determine what you do when you do react - factors like rapid decision making (brake, turn right, turn left), experience in similar situations, and muscle memory.

I don't believe the designer's intent was to construct a driving simulator.

Yeah, you are right. If you drive a car or you are crossing the road your reaction time should be very less because it can prevent accidents. You can avouid many situations if you have less reaction time.
