In the scientific literature, differences in driving behavior due to the presence of users familiar (or unfamiliar) with the road are considered in the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) procedure used to evaluate the Level of Service for Freeways and Highways. However, the problem of the influence of memory on driver behavior, although considered, it is still largely unexplored. This paper reports the results of a test carried out on a two lane rural road in the District of Bari in Puglia Region (Italy) in order to test whether user familiarity with the road influences the average travel speed on this kind of road and to study how many times recreational users have to travel a road to become familiar with it and how the frequency of journeys influences the process. The study of human behavior related to user familiarity with a road should be deepened in order to better calculate the quality of circulation or Level Of Service (LOS) and better understand the relationships between accident rates, traffic flow and driver categories.
