The project focuses risk perception and uncertainty from the public, policymakers, professional transporters and experts related to reducing accidental in transport. The transport means include public (aviation, rail, bus, sea transport) as well as privat e means of transportation (car, MC, scooter, bike and walking). The project consists of 3 subprojects. 1: Risk perception by vulnerable groups and areas' consequences for transport safety and risk management. The study focuses risk perception related to mobility and modal choice for various and vulnerable user groups (age, sex, socio-economic status, ethnicity, professionality related to transportation). Both non-risk factors (costs, convenient transport, leisure activities etc.) and various risk factors will be considered. A further focus is on decision makers' regards of risk perception by user groups in developing strategies and plans for transport and risk management. 3 types of geographical contexts are studied: big cities, medium size towns and rur al areas. 2: Risk perception, uncertainty and transport safety decisions, examines the role of risk perception and uncertainty in individual- and organisational level decisions related to transport safety decisions. 3: Associations between perceived and objective risk in transport The study also aims to examine differences in subjective and objective risk ratings related to various types of transportation as well as other risk sources (subjective risk assessments versus e.g. objective ratings from a Nor wegian public) and to analyse how ethnicity, gender, age, education and professionality influence the differences.
