An engineer student is driving is driving on a level roadway and sees a construction sign 500 ft ahead in the middle of the roadway. The student strikes the sign at a speed of 25 mi/h. if the student was travelling at 65 mi/h when the sign was first spotted, what was the student's associated perception reaction time?
