Traffic congestion, which has a direct impact on the driver’s mood and action, has become a serious problem in rush hours in most cities of China. Currently, the study about driver’s mood and action in traffic congestion is scarce, so it is necessary to work on the relationship among driver’s mood and action and traffic congestion. And the PSR (pressure-state-response) framework is established to describe that relationship. Here, PSR framework is composed of a three-level logical structure, which is composed of traffic congestion environment, drivers’ physiology change, and drivers’ behavior change. Based on the PSR framework, various styles of drivers have been chosen to drive on the congested roads, and then traffic stream state, drivers’ physiology, and behavior characters have been measured via the appropriative equipment. Further, driver’s visual characteristics and lane changing characteristics are analyzed to determine the parameters of PSR framework. According to the PSR framework, the changing law of drivers’ characteristics in traffic congestion has been obtained to offer necessary logical space and systematic framework for traffic congestion management.
