Abstract [sv]

”Future on the road” is a traffic education project carried out in schools in

the Swedish municipality

of Arboga. The project has covered six years between the ages 13 to 19, which

corresponds to classes

7–9 in primary school and classes 1–3 in upper secondary school. In total,

the aim was that the

education programme should consist of 120 lectures, i.e. 20 lectures per

year. The project has

included the total population of students in Arboga, which means that

approximately 500 students

have been included. The education had a broader perspective than traditional

traffic education

programmes. The purpose was to influence values and attitudes regarding car

usage and choice of

transport modes in order to make youngsters more inclined to protect the

environment, improve

safety in traffic and reduce the community’s costs arising through undesired

effects of the transport

system. This broad perspective covers aspects such as road safety, transport

needs, choice of transport

modes, pollution and environment, health, economy, etc. The results of the

evaluation shows that the

education functioned well in the primary school while there were several

problems in the secondary

school, which lead to a number of problems that reduced the possibility of

achieving the goals fully.

The results show that it is possible to carry out a road user education

project in school but the

activities must be built upon a stable and correct fundament. In the

discussion section of the report,

the project is related to the role of traffic education in school.
