Abstract [en]

Speed is one of the most key factor that increases the accident risk and injury severity (Nilsson, 2004). Therefore, speed limits are set to guide to choose the right speed based on the road environment. However, compliance level is in general low which means that many drivers choose to drive faster than the speed limit when traffic condition is not congested. Mannering (2009) points out that there is a general disrespect to keep speed limits worldwide. An increase in the compliance level of taxi drivers could potentially influence the chosen speed of other drivers on the roads. It is therefore important to study and quantify compliance level of taxi drivers.

Public authorities (e.g., police, road administration offices) aim to enforce speed compliance levels on public roads. Speed enforcement campaigns can include police speed control interventions, speed camera surveillance, education campaigns. As a part of this pilot study, police officers plan to meet taxi company representatives to discuss current speed compliance levels an agree on new approaches which can increase compliance levels of taxi drivers

The aim of the study is thus to investigate a new method aiming to increase speed compliance of taxi drivers involving an agreement between the police and taxi representatives.
