  1. 1. Speed Choice The Driver, the Road and Speed Limits

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mats Haglund; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychology; Driving behaviour; Speed choice; Risk estimates; Enforcement; Attitudes; Psykologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Speed choice is one of the more characteristic features of driver behaviour. The speed a driver chooses to travel at determines the degree of difficulty he or she operates under. Higher speeds lead to more accidents, higher accident risk and more severe consequences of an accident. READ MORE

  2. 2. Loyal Speed Adaptation Speed limitation by means of an active accelerator and its possible impacts in built-up areas

    University dissertation from Traffic Engineering

    Author : Sverker Almqvist; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; active accelerator; LSA; speed; speed reduction; driver behaviour; traffic safety; ISA; Teknik; Technological sciences; Road transport technology; Vägtransportteknik;

    Abstract : Traditional measures for improved traffic safety need to be complemented by modern technologies in the struggle to reduce the consequences of traffic accidents all over the world. This thesis introduces the Loyal Speed Adaptation (LSA) function based on recent developments in the area of Intelligent Transport Sys-tems to support the vehicle drivers in not using inappropriate or excessive speeds, which have been found to be an important factor for causing serious and fatal accidents.

    Abstract : Förare bör göra bedömningar som relaterar till hastighet, såsom bedömningar av medelhastighet, risk, restid och bränsleåtgång. Dessa bedömningar är nödvändiga för att föraren ska kunna välja en optimal hastighet, men också för att allmänheten, politiker och andra intressenter som är involverade i trafikfrågor ska kunna fatta välgrundade beslut.

  4. 4. Traffic Safety Dimensions and the Power Model to Describe the Effect of Speed on Safety

    University dissertation from Traffic Engineering

    Author : Göran Nilsson; [2004]

    Abstract : Traffic safety work needs different methods and tools in order to choose and evsaluate traffic safety measures. The thesis contributes to this problem by presenting and visualizing a method which describes the traffic safety situation in several dimensions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Impacts of Speed Limits and Information Systems on Speed Choice from a Safety Perspective

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ary P. Silvano; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; speed choice; urban; roads; speed limits; road characteristics; traffic safety; cooperative systems and warning messages;

    Abstract : Driving a vehicle is considered a demanding task in a complex dynamic environment. For instance, driving a vehicle on urban roads, where motorized vehicles meet vulnerable road users (VRUs) creates a multifaceted environment with difficult trade-offs and interactions. READ MORE
