TWO EXPERIMENTS WITH A MOBILE ROADSIDE SPEEDOMETER IN VESTFOLD COUNTY, NORWAY: THE EFFECTS UPON SPEED

This paper describes two experiments with a mobile roadside speedometer that took place in 1994 in Vestfold county, Norway. A mobile roadside speedometer measures the speed of individual vehicles before presenting it back on a display readable to the passing drivers -- again individually. In one recent study the feedback message may be associated with police enforcement as long as the message on the board has the signature "POLICE" (Casey & Lund 1993). In this present study, however, the board itself was neutral -- without flashing lights, associations of enforcement, or requirements to urge drivers to slow down in cases of speeding.
