Trafikanternas krav på vägars tillstånd: en fokusgruppsstudie
2008 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Part of the project "Trafikanters krav på vägars tillstånd" (Motorists' requirements on the condition of road surfaces) consists of a focus group study, in which the aim is to investigate motorists' expectations regarding road-surface conditions and the factors influencing these expectations. The roads examined in this study are those belonging to the state's road network, primarily outside urban areas. Another aim is to see which names and terms motorists use to describe various road-surface problems. The results will be used to aid the design of a questionnaire as part of a later phase of the project. Six focus groups were conducted and, in total, 42 people participated - 15 private motorists (10 males and 5 females) and 27 professional motorists (15 bus drivers and 12 lorry drivers, all male). Two focus groups consisted of private motorists, one group with younger participants and another with older participants, two groups consisted of bus drivers, and two groups of lorry drivers. All participants had experienced a variety of road and driving stretches (e.g., motorways, urban driving, and long-distance driving).
