Trafikanters upplevda behov och problem i mörkertrafik i tätort: en fokusgruppsstudie med cyklister, äldre bilförare och äldre fotgängare

The aim of this study was to improve knowledge on road users' experiences, problems and needs in night-time traffic in urban areas. Based on a previous literature study, the following road user groups were selected for a focus group study: bicyclists, older drivers and older pedestrians. All three focus groups thought that the problems in night-time traffic in urban areas mainly are related to pedestrians and bicyclists. They seldom have proper lighting and/or retroreflective markings and are thus difficult to detect, not only for drivers but also for other pedestrians and bicyclists. Furthermore, traffic rules for pedestrians and bicyclists are experienced as unclear and inconsistent, which causes irritation and may increase the risk of accidents. Both the bicyclist group and the group with older pedestrians asked for better road markings that clearly show where to walk and where to cycle, since they themselves sometimes find it difficult to know where to walk/cycle and also because they think other pedestrians and bicyclists walk or cycle on the wrong part of the road.
