GAME THEORY, ROAD TRAFFIC AND ACCIDENTS: A THEORY OF USER INTERACTION
SPILLTEORI, TRAFIKK OG ULYKKER: EN TEORI OM INTERAKSJON
The point of departure of the report is that road user interaction is a neglected research area in road safety research. A theory of road user interaction based on game theoretic models, is presented. The theory presents a mechanism that may explain the large amount of irritation in road traffic as well as to explain accidents. It is assumed that drivers who are clever at predicting the actions of the other road users, are less at risk, but that this ability primarily is developed in order to avoid being obstructed by other traffic. The theory is tested by use of a survey conducted in Oslo and Akershus. The theory is generally supported by the data.
