THE INCENTIVE SCHEME CAMPAIGN -25% SUCCESSFUL? AN EXPLORATION OF MUNICIPAL ROAD SAFETY IN THE NETHERLANDS

DE ACTIE -25% GESLAAGD? EEN VERKENNING NAAR DE VERKEERSVEILIGHEID IN GEMEENTEN

This study performs a road hazard analysis for the Dutch municipalities, based on the number of road accident victims. For this purpose, the municipalities were classified into the following three groups: (1) active; (2) less active; and (3) least active. These groups refer to the municipal policy-related activity in the road safety field in response to the influence of the Incentive Scheme Campaign -25%. The analysis compares the 1984-1986 period with the 1990-1992 period. The results of the study did not offer a clear correlation between the degree of municipal activity and the development in road hazard. This does not mean, however, that the Incentice Scheme Campaign -25% did not exert any influence in the degree of road hazard. Rather, it was determined that the explorative study approach and the analysis method were evidently inadequate.
