Most accidents are the result of an error in road user behavior. Safety engineering has been used to try to reduce those errors. The term "safety engineering" covers a whole host of measures which have been invented, designed and installed to try to eliminate or reduce those errors in behavior that lead to accidents. Their purpose ranges from enforcing to encouraging particular types of behavior. The aim of the studies done here is to establish the range of behavioral changes that take place following the installation of a selection of measures, the possible links between the behavior and accident risk, and to investigate how the design of the measures can be "fine tuned" to take account of behavior responses.
