In this report, the road safety consequences of the following three categories of 'special vehicles' within the Netherlands are considered: (1) the invalid vehicle, in particular the scooter mobile (an electrically powered scooter with 3 wheels); (2) the 3 and 4-wheeled motor vehicles with an open body, and a maximum, possible speed of more than 25 km/h (quad, trike, fun-tech); and (3) slow, heavy motor vehicles (maximum 25 km/h), in particular the 'motor vehicles with limited speed (limit)' category. These also include the regular agricultural vehicles and those motor vehicles that have been rebuilt to an 'agricultural vehicle'. Safety analyses were performed: (a) to make recommendations for a further regulation of the behaviour of drivers of 'special vehicles' considered; and (b) to determine on what road types these vehicles may be driven.
