European Road Users' Survey 2004

The aim of this study is the identification of performance indicators for the Trans European Road Network based on interviews with road users, who were asked to evaluate the network of a country they had just visited (most recent experience on their last trip) as well as the network of their own native country. This study includes the following ‘native’ countries: Belgium (Flanders), Belgium (Walloon), Denmark, England, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, and Switzerland. The main subjects in the questionnaire were: satisfaction with road travel, traffic information and delays, and traffic safety. As the main objective was to gather information on the most recent experience, the fieldwork was conducted at the first rest area near the border. At each border half the interviews were held with drivers of the native country and half with drivers from the bordering country. At every border interviews were held with the drivers of coaches, lorries and cars. Each driver was interviewed about the road network they had just used. They also had to evaluate their own national network from memory. A total of almost 3,900 road users were interviewed.
