A behavioural study of quadbike drivers (English)
Abstract [sv]

I takt med att fyrhjulingarna blir allt fler ökar också antalet olyckor. Det första syftet med detta projekt var därför att öka kunskapen om de olyckor som inträffar medan det andra syftet var att öka kunskapen om var och hur fyrhjulingar framförs, vilka misstag och regelbrott som görs samt vilka situationer och beteenden som förarna anser är riskfyllda. Projektet var uppdelat i två delstudier där 51 vägtrafikolyckor registrerade i Strada-polis först analyserades, varefter sju skadade förare (inblandade i någon av de 51 vägtrafikolyckorna som registrerats i Strada) och 22 icke-skadade förare intervjuades. Resultaten visar att fyrhjulingen är ett uppskattat fordon som arbetsredskap, nöjesfordon så väl som transportmedel. Oerfarna förares bristande kunskap alternativt erfarna förares stress och/eller slarv i kombination med fyrhjulingens speciella egenskaper; minderåriga förare; fyrhjulingskörning under alkoholpåverkan samt för höga hastigheter, riskerar dock att leda till olyckor och utan hjälm kan konsekvenserna dessutom bli extra allvarliga. Med studiens resultat som grund rekommenderar författarna därför en rad åtgärder för att minska antalet allvarliga fyrhjulingsolyckor.

Abstract [en]

As quadbikes are becoming more and more common the number of accidents also increases. The first aim of this project was therefore to increase our knowledge of the accidents whilst the second aim was to increase our knowledge of how and where quadbikes are used, the mistakes and violations that are made and what situations and behaviours drivers consider as risky. The project was divided into two sub-studies. In the first sub-study 51 road traffic accident registered in Strada-police were analyzed and in the second 7 injured drivers (involved in any one of the 51 road accidents registered in Strada) and 22 non-injured drivers were interviewed. The results show that quadbikes are popular vehicles with many capabilities; as tools, as recreational vehicles and as vehicles for transport. Inexperienced drivers’ lack of knowledge, alternatively experienced drivers’ stress and/or carelessness combined with the quadbikes special characteristics; underage drivers; quadbike-driving under the influence of alcohol and excessive speed may however lead to accidents. Without a helmet the consequences of an accident might become more severe. Based on the results of this study, the authors recommend a series of measures to reduce the number of serious quadbike accident.
