Effect of law enforcement action on compliance with traffic regulations

Speed limit violation, ignoring red lights, driving under influence and using a hand-held phone while driving (full text is only available in Dutch)

Summary

The main question of the research is: What is the effect on compliance with traffic regulations by motorists and motorcyclists of the various enforcement actions which take place within the national priorities? This provided the following research questions:

  1. To what extent are motorists and motorcyclists familiar with locations of enforcement actions?
  2. Is compliance higher on routes or at locations where enforcement measures are in place compared to those routes or locations without such measures?
  3. Does having had a warning or a penalty imposed following a traffic violation influence compliant behaviour in motorists and motorcyclists?
  4. Does compliance differ according to whether a road-user is caught by means of a mobile speed trap, speed check zone, speed camera or being pulled over?
  5. Which future developments could have consequences for enforcement actions and compliance of motorists and motorcyclists?
