DRIVER IMPROVEMENT - IMPROVEMENT OF THE BEHAVIOUR IN TRAFFIC OF DRIVERS PRONE TO ACCIDENTS - PRINCIPLES AND EXPERIENCE

DRIVER IMPROVEMENT - VERBESSERUNG DES VERKEHRSVERHALTENS AUFFAELLIGER KRAFTFAHRER - GRUNDLAGEN UND ERFAHRUNGEN

THIS PAPER IS PART OF THE FIRST PHASE OF A LONG-TERM PROJECT ENTITLED "DRIVER IMPROVEMENT - DEVELOPMENT OF PSYCHOLOGICAL MEASURES FOR THE REHABILITATION OF TRAFFIC OFFENDERS". THE STARTING POINT FOR THE STUDIES IS THE FACT THAT DRIVER BEHAVIOUR IS TO BE REGARDED AS SOMETHING WHICH IS LEARNED. DRIVER IMPROVEMENT MEASURES ARE APPLIED IF UNSUITABLE BEHAVIOUR CAN BE SEEN TO BE THE RESULT OF LEARNING PROCESSES OR IF IT WOULD APPEAR POSSIBLE TO CORRECT THE FAULTS BY OBJECTIVE TRAINING. THIS REPORT GIVES DETAILS OF THE INDIVIDUAL GROUP PROCEDURES. THE VARIOUS GROUP PROGRAMMES ARE DISTINGUISHED SIGNIFICANTLY BY THEIR OBJECTIVES, THE ROLE OF THE GROUP LEADER, THE FORM AND CONTENT OF THE COURSE, AND THE REPORTS ON EFFECTIVENESS. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT UNIFORM SPECIFICATIONS BE DRAWN UP FOR THE EFFICIENCY TESTING OF DRIVER IMPROVEMENT MEASURES, AND THAT FOR THE OPTIMUM EXECUTION OF DRIVER IMPROVEMENT COURSES, MORE EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE DRAWN FROM OTHER AREAS OF PSYCHOLOGY WHICH HAVE LONG BEEN CONCERNED WITH MODIFICATIONS TO BEHAVIOUR. THE ORGANIZATIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF DRIVER IMPROVEMENT IN AUSTRIA IS DISCUSSED.
