TELEVISION PROGRAM 'THE OUDENRUEN FAMILY'. AN EVALUATION OF THE FIRST EIGHT TELECASTS
TELEVISIEPROGRAMMA 'FAMILIE OUDENRIJN'. EEN EVALUATIE-ONDERZOEK NAAR DE ERSTE ACHT AFLEVERINGEN
During the period between December 1987 and February 1988 the first eight telecasts of a Dutch television series on traffic safety were transmitted. The series had the objective of showing road users that they, themselves, could contribute to traffic safety by changing their attitude to driving. The series could thus act as a medium for traffic accident countermeasures within the framework of the multi-year plan for traffic safety. An evaluation of the first eight telecasts was made to see if the objective could be reached. Small modifications could be mentioned as regards individual responsibility for traffic safety, but ideas on important subjects such as speed and drunkenness were not changed. A few more people considered that the use of seat belts could increase the risk of injury. On the other hand people found that too much publicity about traffic safety was counterproductive.
