This paper illustrates what psychologists can do and learn from the use of intelligent agent-based simulations, in combination with experimental designs, in order to model the behavioral interaction of motorists and motorcyclists in urban traffic, when motorcyclists ride in between the lanes of slow-moving or stopped vehicles. The results of the computer model were validated through a measure that estimates its agreement with the results of real-life traffic videos analyses. Lastly, this paper discusses the implications of adopting intelligent agent-based simulations in experimental psychology.
