Most traffic simulation frameworks use sophisticated models to conceptualize human factors in traffic environments. In this work we want to find out in how far these approaches comply with models from human factor psychology - clearly the most advanced discipline, when it comes to the conceptualization of human behavior. Thus, we analyze common psychological models for human driver behavior and compare those with models that are actually implemented in contemporary traffic simulation frameworks. We discuss our findings and point out future research directions.
