DIE BEDINGUNGEN VERHALTENSRELEVANTER VERKEHRSINFORMATIONEN

AN ANALYSIS IS BEING MADE OF TRAFFIC INFORMATION BROADCAST IN AUSTRIA. THE ACTUAL STRUCTURE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MESSAGES WILL BE COMPARED WITH THE RESULTS OF INTERVIEWS WITH EXPERTS RELATING TO THE DESIGN CONTENT OF THE MESSAGES AND WITH THE RESULTS OF A PLANNED LABORATORY TEST OF THE COMPREHENSIBILITY, EFFECTIVENESS AND RELEVANCE OF THE MESSAGES. IN THE PLANNED LABORATORY TEST DIFFERENT EXAMPLES OF MESSAGES ARE TO BE CHECKED FOR THE SAID THREE PROPERTIES. A SUBSEQUENT INTERVIEW WITH DRIVERS SHOULD PROVIDE INFORMATION ON THE TYPES OF MESSAGES DRIVERS PREFER AND DETERMINE WHICH PROPOSALS WORKED OUT IN THE LABORATORY WOULD BE ACCEPTABLE TO DRIVERS.
