On the basis of the conducted studies was established the relationship between the elements of road conditions and indicators of the functional status of the driver. Optimal speed for various road conditions is established. The optimality criterion is the reliability of the driver's activity. The obtained results are the basis for the development of measures aimed at optimizing the elements of the environment movement, as well as practical methods of assessing damage from an accident in a changing operating conditions.
