Abstract [sv]

Föreliggande projekt ingår som en del i VTI:s tema "Trafiksäkerhetsanalys". Undersökningen om resor till skolan baseras på resultat från Vägverkets och VTI:s enkätbaserade trafiksäkerhetsundersökning (TSU92-) och på den officiella, polisrapporterade, trafikolycksstatistiken. Hälften av resorna till skolan skedde till fots eller med cykel. Resor till fots översteg sällan 2 kilometer och resor med cykel sällan 3,5 kilometer. Flickor gick oftare än pojkar. Pojkar cyklade oftare än flickor. Restiden till skolan vari genomsnitt 8-9 minuter då man gick till fots, cyklade eller åkte bil medan den var tre gånger längre om man åkte buss. Man vistades betydligt längre tid i trafikmiljön vid resan från skolan än vid resan till skolan. Det var också vanligt att man bytte färdsätt exempelvis blev skjutsad med bil till skolan och sedan gick hem. Skolelevernas risk att skadas i trafikolycka var 50 % högre under skoltid än under motsvarande tid då det inte var skoldag. Lägst risk hade lågstadieeleverna och gymnasieeleverna. Till stor del berodde detta på att dessa två grupper oftare än de två övriga, mellanstadieeleverna och högstadieeleverna, färdades med buss och bil till och från skolan och i mindre utsträckning som oskyddad trafikant. Högstadieeleverna hade dubbelt så hög risk och mellanstadieeleverna 50 % högre risk än lågstadie- och gymnasieeleverna

Abstract [en]

This project is part of the VTI topic "Traffic safety analysis". The investigation on journeys to school is based on a questionnaire based traffic safety survey (TSU92-) carried out by VTI and the Swedish Road Administration and on the official statistics relating to accidents reported to the police. Half the journeys to school were on foot or by cycle. Journeys on foot were seldom longer than 2 km, and cycle journeys seldom longer than 3.5 km. Girls walked more often than boys. Boys cycled more often than girls. The journey time to school was on average 8-9 minutes on foot, by cycle or by car, while it was three times as long by bus. Much more time was spent in the traffic environment on the journey home than on the journey to school. It was also usual for the mode to be changed; for instance, pupils travelled to school by car and walked home. The risk of school pupils being injured in a traffic accident was 50% higher during school time than during a similar period when it was not a school day. Primary school and higher secondary school pupils ran the least risk. To a large extent, this was due to the fact that these two groups, more often than the two others, middle and secondary school pupils, travelled by bus or car to and from school and less often as vulnerable road users. The risk run by secondary school pupils was twice as high, and that by middle school pupils 50% higher, than that run by primary school and upper secondary school pupils.
