    Dangerous use of mobile phones and other communication devices while driving: A toolbox of counter-measures2013In: Proceedings of the 16th International Conference Road Safety on Four Continents: Beijing, China. 15-17 May 2013, Linköping: Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut, 2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of mobile phone and similar devices while driving has been a topic of discussion and research for several years. It is now an established fact that driving performance is deteriorated due to distraction but no clear conclusions can yet be drawn concerning influence on crash rates. Better studies on this relationship is needed. Most countries in Europe and many countries elsewhere have introduced different types of bans for handheld devices. Sweden has, however, no such bans. VTI was commissioned by the Swedish Government to outline possible means to reduce the dangerous usage of mobile phones and other communication devices while driving as alternatives to banning. This task was a result of a previous VTI-state-of-the-art review of research on mobile phone and other communication device usage while driving. One of the findings in the review was that bans on handheld phones did not appear to reduce the number of crashes.

    Eighteen different countermeasures in three main areas were suggested. (1) Technical solutions such as countermeasures directed towards the infrastructure, the vehicle and the communication device. (2) Education and information, describing different ways to increase knowledge and understanding among stakeholders and different driver categories. (3) Different possibilities for how society, industry and organisations can influence the behaviour of individuals, via policies, rules, recommendations and incentives. Our conclusion is that a combination of different countermeasures is needed – where education and information to the drivers are combined with support and incentives for a safe usage of different communication devices.

    Young novice drivers, driver education and training: literature review2003Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A great many people are killed or seriously injured in road traffic with young novice drivers every year, which constitutes a major public health problem. Considering the rapid progress being made in developing different road safety measures, new knowledge must be spread more quickly and be put into application. Therefore, VTI and the University of Turku has carried out this literature review about young novice drivers, driver education and training. The review was carried out from January to April 2003. The aims were to review literature concerning:

    1. Driving behaviour and accident involvement during the first years with a licence, including the underlying psychological and social processes as well as in-vehicle support systems and their implication for young, novice drivers.

    2. Methods and incentives used to influence young drivers' attitudes and behaviour, with special attention to alcohol, seat belt use and speeding.

    3. The impact of high school driver education on young novice drivers' safety.

    4. The impact of different licensing systems on young novice drivers' safety.

    In all, this review contains 322 different references. As a result of the review, conclusions were drawn about the accident situation for young novice drivers, the different psychological, social and pedagogical processes that contribute to their driving behaviour and how their safety can be approved through driver education and other methods. The literature review has clearly shown that there is much knowledge about driver behaviour, road safety and educational methods that has not yet been applied in the Swedish driver education system. It is thus suggested that an experiment is launched where new methods and structures are tested on a large scale basis. If this is never done, it will be impossible to solve the road safety problems of young drivers.

    The TRAINER project: development of a new cost-effective Pan-European driver training methodology and how to evaluate it2001In: Proceedings of the conference Traffic Safety on Three Continents: International conference in Moscow, Russia, 19-21 September, 2001 / [ed] Asp, Kenneth, Linköping: Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut, 2001, Vol. 18A:2, p. 12-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of the TRAINER project is to develop a new cost-effective Pan-European driver training methodology, based on computer based interactive multimedia and simulator technology, which will pay significant attention not only to gain experience of driving and handling the car, but also to the enhancement of risk awareness of learner drivers. For this purpose three different simulation tools will be developed. Each set will consist of a multimedia info-box and a low-cost-medium-cost driving simulator. A number of scenarios for application in the different simulation environments will be developed, which address the most important needs of learner drivers. They have been structured in accordance with the four hierarchical levels of the GADGET-matrix: Level 4 - Goals for life and skills for living, Level 3 - Goals and context of driving, Level 2 - Mastering traffic situations, Level 1 - Vehicle maneuvering. In order to be able to assess the TRAINER tools impact on traffic safety, not only a set of driver performance pilots needs to be performed but also another set of pilots. In these pilots driver behavior in a critical scenario should be measured. However, the drivers' behavior is not only influenced by his/her driving performance skills, but also on the hazard perceptual abilities of the driver. Hence, based on the assumption that driving skills is controlled for by the driver performance pilots, the results from the traffic safety impact pilots will address the question on whether or not increased hazard perception has been achieved by use of the TRAINER tools.

    The Test of Visual Perceptual Skills (non-motor) Upper Level is Not a Valid Predictor for the Outcome of Driver Education2001In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 72-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to reduce the monetary and personal costs of driver training for persons with cerebral palsy, it is of interest to find a predictor that is able to select potential license holders. Previous research has shown that such a predictor could be one that assesses visual perception. In the present study, the Test of Visual Perceptual Skills (non-motor) Upper Level, was validated for predicting the outcome of driver education. It was found that using the test for this purpose could not be recommended. The findings of the present study were not in accordance with the results of other studies on the predictive value of perceptual tests regarding the ability to drive, owing to the use of different methods. Future studies should focus on cross-validation of perceptual tests for different types of independent variables, such as driving license or not, accident involvement and driving ability.

    Mopedungdomars trafiksäkerhet: föräldrars ansvar och engagemang2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this study is to contribute to a better understanding of the importance of parents in young moped riders’ behaviour in traffic. The study consists of three parts; a literature review, a survey and an interview study. In the survey, 440 parents of teenagers (who had passed their test for mopeds) participated. In the interview study, 10 of the parents who took part in the survey were interviewed. The results from the literature review show that parents play an important role in young people’s perceptions, attitudes, norms, and behaviours associated with moped driving. Parents can also get involved in different ways to help in improving their teenagers’ knowledge and behaviour in traffic. In general, the review show that parents need support in order to be able to take control, and they also need support from other parents. The main results of the survey show that parents have great faith in the teenager when it comes to their knowledge and behaviour in traffic. In general, the results show that moped driving is not a topic being discussed very much. Some parents have implemented restrictions and the most common ones are related to alcohol and the usage of a helmet. In this study, less than ten percent wanted some form of support from others. Those who need help do not to the same extent as the others, believe that their teenager behave properly in traffic and they also believe that they are more influenced by social media. The study also found that the perception of boys and girls differ. Girls are considered to be safer on the roads but despite this, they have more restrictions placed on them than boys. Even if women value the teen’s knowledge and behaviour in traffic higher than men, they also have imposed more restrictions. In the family, women are talking more about risks in traffic than men are. The results from the interview study show that very few parents are in need of support when it comes to their children’s moped use. More detailed analyses of the interviews, however, reveals that parents would appreciate various forms of assistance, such as written information, training and/or information sessions as well as Internet-based parental forums. Implications of the current finding for the development of methods to increase parental commitment and engagement are presented.

    Den svenska förarutbildningen: dagsläge och framtidsutsikter2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this study is to provide a deep and broad understanding of current practice of driver training. Based on the results of four in-depth studies, the project attempts to identify the need for improvement. Furthermore, and in order to improve driver training some essential actions will be presented. Several methods have been used to achieve this aim. The report starts with a literature review looking at various aspects which can influence young driver trainer’s ability to drive safely but also literature looking at deficiencies and needs for change. The following chapter presents accident statistics which includes current data on young drivers’ accident involvement and how this has changed in recent years. That is followed by a summary of statistics on driving license tests and retests. The project also includes an interview study in which eleven professionals were interviewed (politicians, government officials, researchers and representatives of driving schools and race tracks). The purpose of this study was to discuss their views on the current driver training in Sweden but also their own suggestions for change. Two surveys were then carried out. The first was aimed at new drivers of different ages about their driver training and the other was aimed at driving instructors. The general conclusion of this study is that the general discussion of driver training focuses too much on time and cost rather than quality which does not favour traffic safety. The recommendation is therefore that there is a need for a more fundamental change of driver training. To realise this, some of the teaching methods used need to be improved. These methods can then be applied to “risk education” and to the more general driver training. Other areas which are in need for improvement focus on; private practice and a closer contact with driving schools, enhancing the quality of compulsory training and introduce more parts, more frequent quality assurance of driving schools and increased supervision and collaboration between stakeholders, a development of driving licence testing and a better consensus between the objectives, content/process and driving test, a clearer division of responsibilities regarding research and development and a better coordination of the various elements of driver training. Finally, there is a need to highlight best practice which can only be done if evaluation becomes common practice.

    Evaluation of 16-years age limit for driver training: first report1997Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    VTI has performed an evaluation of lowering the age limit for practising to 16 years. The evaluation includes several substudies such as analysing how the new system is used and what effects it has on attitudes, driving behaviour and accident involvement. The change was introduced in September 1993 and up to now the effects during the first year after licensing have been analysed.

    The main idea behind the lowered age limit was to enable the learner drivers to practice more and thus to increase their experience behind the wheel before they are left alone as drivers. The expectation was that this increased experience would also lead to a reduction in accident involvement.

    The results show that approximately 45􂀔50% of the population in this age group have received a learner permit at an age younger than 171/2 years which was the limit in the old system. To some extent the group which makes use of the lowered age limit is special. The results show that 5-10% are from a better social background.

    The learner drivers who start earlier increase their hours of practising by 2.5 to 3 times to 118 hours. This is to be compared with an average of47 hours in the old system and 41 among those in the new system who are not making use of the lowered age limit.

    The youngest (16 - 171/2 years) were not involved in more accidents during practising than the older ones (171/2 - 18 years), calculated as accidents per driver or as accidents per hours of practising. Those who start practising earlier have 40% lower accident risk (accidents per kilometre) after licensing compared with the control groups. Part of this difference is due to social differences but a reduction of 35% is evaluated as an effect of the lowered age limit and the increased experience.

    Framtid på väg: ett projekt med trafikantundervisning i högstadiet och gymnasieskolan2004Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    ”Future on the road” is a traffic education project carried out in schools in

    the Swedish municipality

    of Arboga. The project has covered six years between the ages 13 to 19, which

    corresponds to classes

    7–9 in primary school and classes 1–3 in upper secondary school. In total,

    the aim was that the

    education programme should consist of 120 lectures, i.e. 20 lectures per

    year. The project has

    included the total population of students in Arboga, which means that

    approximately 500 students

    have been included. The education had a broader perspective than traditional

    traffic education

    programmes. The purpose was to influence values and attitudes regarding car

    usage and choice of

    transport modes in order to make youngsters more inclined to protect the

    environment, improve

    safety in traffic and reduce the community’s costs arising through undesired

    effects of the transport

    system. This broad perspective covers aspects such as road safety, transport

    needs, choice of transport

    modes, pollution and environment, health, economy, etc. The results of the

    evaluation shows that the

    education functioned well in the primary school while there were several

    problems in the secondary

    school, which lead to a number of problems that reduced the possibility of

    achieving the goals fully.

    The results show that it is possible to carry out a road user education

    project in school but the

    activities must be built upon a stable and correct fundament. In the

    discussion section of the report,

    the project is related to the role of traffic education in school.

    Unga mopedisters olycksinblandning: orsaker och konsekvenser2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The general aim of this study is to increase knowledge about the processes leading to accidents. This was done with a knowledge review, an in-depth study of moped crashes with serious injuries and an analysis of teenagers’ discussions on the internet about moped riding. Moped accidents are most common among young men. A number of different contributing factors have been identified as important for the possibilities to drive safely and avoid accidents. In addition to skills to maneuver the moped in traffic, other aspects important for motivation and choices before and during driving are presented. This may for example be age, sex, personality, group affiliation, socio economic standing and brain maturation. The statistics on moped sales show that fewer and fewer mopeds are sold in Sweden. The reduction in sales of class I is largest. There are several possible reasons for this, such as new rules for licensing or low economic growth. The reduction is also reflected in a reduction of the number of accident and injured persons over time. The domination by accidents involving 15-year-olds are also decreasing. From the interviews, it is obvious that riding moped in gangs is something that mainly boys are doing. Riding in gangs is also age related since when they are continuing to the gymnasium (high school), other interests than moped riding are taking over, occupying evenings and weekends. From the Internet analysis, it is clear that young people are discussing mopeds and moped riding in many different forums. The topics are spare parts, technical matters, tuning, speeding, helmet use, police chases etc. The discussions may be regarded as a basis for the development of role models and ideal for different subcultures within the moped world. Measures were discussed in the areas of police, rules and regulations, age limits, technical aspects, insurance, education, parental engagement, information campaigns, internet, vehicle classifications, infrastructure and future technical support systems.

    Trafiksäkerhetsåtgärder i Televerket: ett jämförande försök att minska skador och kostnader genom körträning, gruppsamtal, bonus och kampanj1990Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Different measures to reduce injuries and costs within the transport organisation of the Swedish Telecom were tested.

    The measures were as follows:

    l) Driver training

    2) Influence on behaviour by group discussions

    3) No-claim bonus and

    4) Campaign efforts

    The organisation and realisation of the experiment were such that possible results of the measures could be measured. The four groups were chosen from all management sections (profit centres) of the whole transport organisation of the Swedish Telecom by matching relevant background data. The management sections represent a sufficiently large and relatively homogeneous group. The background data used in sampling consisted of the number of drivers, accident risk during the years prior to the experiment and proportion type of built-up area.

    Using a power analysis in which an accident reduction of 30 per cent was calculated, the number of management sections was calculated to be 30. The total number of drivers in the experiment was thus 3,600, that is approximately 900 drivers in each experimental group.

    The measures were then carried out in parallel but totally independent of each other.

    Privat övningskörning: –en undersökning om hur den utnyttjas och om dess för- och nackdelar för trafiksäkerheten2002Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Lay instructed driver training is an important ingredient in the Swedish driver licensing system, since it contributes to increased safety among novice drivers after they have obtained a licence. This study shows that apart from these benefits in terms of safety effects, there are problems regarding the way in which the lay instructed training is carried out and the accidents that occur during practice. However, a cost-benefit estimation shows that the advantages are much greater than the disadvantages. An important conclusion from the study is that measures need to be introduced in order to reduce the number of accidents during practice and that there is still a large potential for increasing the effects of lay instructed training on the accident situation after obtaining a licence.

    The study was carried out with five aims; to present a knowledge review concerning lay instruction and accidents during practice, to describe how lay instructed training is carried out today concerning quantity and quality, to analyse police reported injury accidents during practice through register studies and in depth analysis of fatal accidents in order to increase knowledge about safety during practice driving, to develop suggestions for changes in lay instructed training and to develop suggestions for new trial activities with improved driver training.

    The study consists of three parts; a knowledge review, a study of how, when and where lay instructed training is carried out, and an analysis of accidents during practice driving.

    In order to improve safety during training and to increase safety effects after licensing, measures are suggested for improving the structure and planning of where, when and how the training is carried out. Mandatory education of lay supervisors and improved co-operation between supervisors and driving schools are also suggested.

    Nordic citizens' views on traffic safety2012In: Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences, ISSN 1877-0428, E-ISSN 1877-0428, Vol. 48, p. 373-383Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Even though traffic safety is very high in the Nordic countries, there are still too many people who die or are severely injured. The Nordic Road Safety Council conducted a questionnaire survey with the purpose to find differences between member countries in inhabitants’ behavior and attitudes in relevant traffic safety fields.

    The survey focused on speed, driving under the influence of alcohol, use of safety belt, mobile phone use, fatigue, use of bicycle helmets and child restraint systems. Around 5000 people aged 18-74 years old answered the questionnaire. Some of the similarities and differences that were found between the countries are presented. This paper focuses on behavior and attitudes towards speed, drunk driving, and safety belt use.
