POSSIBILITIES OF A DRL-EXPERIMENT IN THE NETHERLANDS: NORTHERN LIGHTS CAMPAIGN

The Transportation and Traffic Research Department (DKV) of the Dutch Ministry of Transport has submitted three questions to the Dutch Institute for Road Safety Research SWOV. They concern the duration and scope of a Daytime Running Light (DRL) experiment in the northern provinces of the Netherlands, the reliability of statements made on the basis of an evaluation study of the experiment and the possibility of assessing the effect of DRL in relation to road safety for slow traffic, taking into account that the use of DRL would be voluntary for the experiment. An account of an analysis to enable statements concerning the duration and scope of an experiment on DRL in the northern provinces of the Netherlands is presented. The analysis is based on strict statistical requirements, stricter than the usual norm employed for various probability calculations. It is stated that the success of the experiment depends on the degree to which drivers will cooperate by using DRL.
