Abstract [en]

The traffic environment can be characterised as a technical system in which users interact with system objectives to quickly and safely move from one point to another. To achieve the system objectives it is necessary for the system to be easy to understand and comply with. The purpose of the present study is to examine professional driver's understanding of the rule governing giving right of way to pedestrians at unguarded pedestrian crossings as well as their compliance with maximum permitted speeds. One hundred and ninety six professionals from different transport companies located in Sweden participated in the study. The main results showed that the professional drivers’ understanding of the rule governing giving right of way to pedestrians was quite insufficient, even though, they had considerable confidence in their understanding of that rule. Furthermore, their general attitude was to comply with the maximum speed permitted, even though, they often exceeded it.
