The aims with the study have been to improve the knowledge about where fatigue related accidents occur but also to generate hypotheses about what causes drivers to experience fatigue. The focus has been on hypotheses about what information a driver needs to:

  • recognise the feeling of being fatigued
  • stop driving when fatigued
  • Improve the understanding of the danger of driving when fatigued

The study includes both an accident analysis and discussion within focus groups. Three discussions have been performed: one with long distance commuters, one with young drivers and one with professional drivers. The knowledge received and hypotheses developed from this work has resulted in a questionnaire. The aim with the questionnaire is to test if it is possible to generalise the hypothesis. The questionnaire has been tested within the project.
