A DRIVER TRAINING FOR MOPED RIDERS?
EEN RIJOPLEIDING VOOR BROMFIETSERS?
The safety of moped drivers in traffic in the Netherlands is studied in this article, in order to suggest effective training programmes for them. The following factors are studied: (a) the literature on accidents; (b) factors influencing safety; (c) international legislation on moped riders; (d) education; (e) the contents of existing training programmes both in and outside the Netherlands; and (F) evaluation of these programmes. Some of the conclusions are: (1) driver training for moped riders in the Netherlands is desirable; (2) the standards of the programmes must be high to make them effective; and (3) little evaluation has been done of the programmes and of their effects on traffic safety.
