SPI Methodology: Deviant traffic behaviour - Non-compliance with rules (82.0751)
Road users contribute significantly to road safety through their behaviour. Inappropriate behaviour carries a high risk of accidents. In order to curb such behaviour, which puts road users at risk to themselves and others, legal regulations have been created which, if not followed, can result in penalties and other secondary preventive measures. A classification of safety-relevant violations is carried out, for example, via the driving suitability assessment system according to § 4 of the Road Traffic Act. It is problematic that only detected offences and offences that are associated with particular severity are stored in the driving suitability register. In the accident statistics, such offences are only listed if they were significantly identified as the cause of the accident. This creates a dark field of inappropriate behaviour, the extent of which can hardly be estimated. The aim of the project is to identify a suitable indicator for rule compliance and to develop a survey methodology that includes the dark field and that can be carried out repeatedly on a regular basis.
Key Performance Indicator Alcohol - Development of a Methodology and Initial Survey (82.0758)
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are metrics that can be used to measure or determine progress or degree of achievement against key objectives or critical success factors. In the area of road safety, KPIs are used to measure the effectiveness and demonstrate progress of road safety measures and initiatives. Driving under the influence of alcohol is still a significant problem for road safety. For a valid survey of a KPI in the area of drink-driving, the EU Commission recommends conducting regular roadside surveys. This survey methodology cannot be implemented in Germany. The aim of this project is to develop a methodology for surveying the KPI "Alcohol in Road Traffic" and to conduct a first survey. The repeated implementation of the survey at a time interval yet to be defined must be possible over many years.
