2007 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

This literature review is primarily aimed at describing studies that deal with the interaction between driver behaviour and variable message signs, VMS. The collected references are, for the most part, published in Europe or studies about European conditions, published during the years of 2000-2005. Areas treated in the study are effects on driver behaviour, driver attitudes, design, understanding and recall of VMS, and accidents and regulations concerning VMS. The literature review is supplemented by a behavioural background and recommendations from a behavioural science perspective.
