Abstract

The paper discusses the definition and concept of behavioural adaptation in road safety. We analysed the different terms and messages embedded in the OECD (1990) definition on the basis of current knowledge of traffic related behaviour and impacts of different contributing factors. We specifically focussed on the knowledge accumulated during the last 20 years regarding the behavioural effects of different intelligent transport systems (ITS) and services, and noted that some parts of the definition need to be modified in order to better account for that knowledge. As a result, a new definition of behavioural adaptation was recommended.
