TIME AND PLACE FACTORS CONCERNING SPEED FORMATION

TIJD EN PLAATSFAKTOREN BIJ SNELHEIDSVORMING

Some factors concerning the constituents of speed were studied. Hypotheses were formulated about the influence of (1) motive, (2) phase of a travel and (3) a combination of motive, phase and acquaintance with a route, on speed-formation. Observations were made in four Dutch communities. These observations were used in a single-factor analysis. From this analysis it cannot be shown conclusively that the hypotheses should be accepted. A factor which should not have any influence on speed-formation concerns the different days of a week. Indeed no differences can be found between the means of velocities observed on a location for different days of a week. Finally typologies of environments were placed in a sequence of speeds. Testing did not reject this hypothesis. (TRRL)
