Same survey of road users’ attitudes in 50 countries

At the Road Safety on Five Continents Conference, RS5C, one entire session presented a large survey of road users' attitudes in 38 countries. Results show large differences between countries in many areas, both regarding behavior and attitudes. A new survey in 50 countries will be conducted in 2018 and The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI), will participate as one of the partners.
