The functioning of any transport system does not seem possible without a meaningful human interaction. Moreover, the human is the organizer of the transport processes and systems. At the same time, even the advanced transport technologies, designed and operated without due attention to the human factor, it is not enough based on the ergonomics of work and life. However, the transport system is a subsystem of a higher hierarchy system functioning of city, region or some areas. The last one, have their main purpose - to provide citizens of ability to live. Obviously, people are been organizers, performers and objects of transportation process. And, rising attention to the driver in the transport system is become more and more interesting and actual in nowadays. Therefore, the research of human functional state interacting with road traffic in the city’s transport system is considerable interest. The aim of the paper is to estimate the emotional condition of the driver in difficult traffic situations. Using the method of galvanic skin response the relationship between the road conditions, driver’s actions on the road and his emotional state had found. The vehicle’s deceleration process and driver's functional state changes due to these actions had considered. The indicators for assessing the driver’s emotional state based on the method of galvanic skin response had proposed. The method of galvanic skin reaction of the person allowed assessing the driver's reaction to the conditioned stimulus - braking at stop sign.
