ORDERING OF PROBLEMS WITH ROAD USER BEHAVIOUR
RANGORDENING VAN PROBLEMEN MET HET GEDRAG VAN WEGGEBRUIKERS
A preliminary ranking of road user behavioural problems is presented in this report. It studies which traffic rules are important for traffic safety and why. The problem is also evaluated by using accident data. Two problems, important because of the number of victims involved, are then worked out in more detail. These problems are: (1) fatal single car-accidents on 80 km/h road sections; and (2) collisions between cars and bicycles on junctions of 50 km/h roads inside built-up areas. This has been done in order to solve the problems caused by road user behaviour. The introduction of the new Dutch traffic regulations as from March 1, 1990 was the motive for this research, because the basic rules for the road user behaviour can be found in these regulations. The new traffic regulations alone will not be sufficient to modify the road user behaviour significantly.
