The expectations and views of car drivers concerning antilock brakes (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) systems (English)
Abstract [sv]

The views of car drivers concerning antilock brakes (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) systems, and their experience of these, have been studied. A study has also been made of their intentions to behave in a certain way in three critical driving situations. The investigation was performed as a questionnaire survey sent by post to 1 000 car drivers with an electronic stability control system and to 1 000 drivers of similar cars without an electronic stability control system. The investigation was carried out in the autumn of 2008. A total of 959 questionnaires were answered, i.e. a response rate of 48%. The results show that about 90% of the car drivers with an electronic stability control system know that the car is equipped with the system. If the car drivers without an electronic stability control system in the car are studied, more than 35% erroneously state that the car has the system. Almost all drivers (over 95%) are aware that they have antilock brakes. In the above risk situations, the drivers consistently state that they are more likely to take a risk when they think they have the support system, than when they do not have one. The increased tendency to take risks is approximately the same for all the three situations. The results show that men are more riskprone than women. As regards the age, there is a consistent pattern that the youngest age group is always represented in the age group or age groups which have the highest tendency to take risks. It is also shown that when "Theory of planned behaviour" is used, the intentions of between 41-70% of the drivers are explained by the model.
