An approach to create support for speed reduction
2001 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [sv]

One of the most important causes of traffic danger is speeding. However, it

appears that driving too fast in the traffic is a phenomenon, which is very

difficult to influence. The author states that there is a need for a

preventive approach and that this is why the concept of sustainable safety

was introduced in The Netherlands. A concept, which is comparable with the

Swedish "Vision Zero" approach. The concept is briefly presented. A part

consists of government subsidies to local authorities if they can present

overall accident countermeasure programs. The process of making submissions

by the local municipalities could be stimulated by allowing residents to

actively participate by applying at their local councils for more 30-km zones

in their neighbourhood. An important part of this is that councils develop

the plans in dialogue with residents. This also helps raise the public's

acceptance of speed controlling measures. It is precisely these two aspects

of public participation (mobilisation and activation, as well as the creation

of a basis of support and acceptance) which have enabled The Dutch Traffic

Safety Association - 3VO to develop concrete plans. These plans are twofold.

On the one hand the public campaign "30 maakt je buurt weer prettig" ("30 km

zones in front of your own home") and on the other hand, a methodology for

interactive policy forming. The presentation in this paper details features

of the campaign.
