Reducing our reliance on cars has many environmental and health benefits – traffic congestion should decrease, air quality should improve and people should be fitter and healthier. Also positive effects on road safety are to be expected, e.g. through a modal shift from passenger cars to public means of transport with lower accident risk. Research results are available in the field of travel behaviour and stimulation for modal shifts of motorized road users to other means of transport. In this chapter of SARTRE 4 report, Other Road Users (i.e. cyclists, pedestrians and users of public transport) are analysed in respect of the motivations and travelling styles. To know and to understand the motivations for travelling using these other methods of transportation is crucial for policy makers if they are to draft effective traffic policies that encourage a shift from car use to greater use of other means of transportation.
