This study examined driving behaviors with and without right of way by the same person. Nineteen participants drove through the experimental course on roads using a bicycle and a car. There was a unsignalized crossing with poor visibility in the course. We recorded videos and analyzed driving behaviors. As a result, when participants were driving without right of way as opposed to driving with right of way, the number of looking frequencies for crossing the road was larger and the total looking time for crossing the road was longer both on a bicycle and in a car. By contrast, the time to pass the crossing was shorter on a bicycle in spite that it was longer in a car. Therefore, it suggests that they didn't slow down even though they were aware that they drove without right of way on a bicycle.
