Road Safety Knowledge Centre Resources

19 July 2017

A paper from University of West England (Centre for Transport & Society) is one of the most read resources available on the  Road Safety Knowledge Centre. It explores how support and compliance are interlinked. Whilst as expected, many supporters said they would comply with the limits, and many opponents might not comply, more surprisingly it was also found that some supporters claimed not to comply, while some opponents of 20 mph limits were compliers.

Explanations included the likelihood of strong moral adherence to not breaking laws amongst opponent–compliers, and self-enhancement bias amongst supporter–non-compliers.

Recently loaded resources include: Virtual Reality Human Factors : immersive video as a behaviour change tool, is a study commissioned by Safer Roads Humber and carried out by Road Safety Analysis (RSA), also found that the use of a VR film as a standalone activity will not lead to the required behaviour change, and as such the films should be used as part of a wider intervention such as a classroom presentation.
