Ökad hastighetsefterlevnad hos den organiserade trafiken: en pilotstudie avseende taxi


Increased speed compliance has been identified as one of the most important areas to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured in traffic. Previous measurements on the state road network have shown that in 2018, only 45 % complied with the posted speed limit. Both private motorists and professional drivers are poor at keeping the speed limit. Increased compliance among professional drivers is considered to have great potential to affect both traffic rhythm and speed levels in traffic in general.

The aim of this project is to find methods that are effective in getting organized traffic to stay within the speed limits and in this pilot, we studied speed compliance of taxi drivers on two selected motorways in Stockholm and Gothenburg. Measurements were performed in 2017 and 2019 before and after a dialogue was held between the taxi companies, the Police, the Swedish Transport Administration, and the Swedish Transport Agency.

Opportunities for a new market in electrified regional flight

Large, electrified aircraft is far off in the future. On the other hand, there may be potential for a new market with smaller regional flights. These are the conclusions of a literature survey made by researchers at VTI.


Need for standards as electric road systems are developed

The need for standardisation is increasing as electric road systems are reaching higher levels of maturity. A large part of the standards for intelligent transport systems (ITS) assessed in a new VTI and SIS study was considered potentially useful for...
