Associations between risk judgments and demand for transport risk mitigation

Sammendrag

The present study tested a hypothesized model regarding associations between risk sensitivity, risk perception, transport priorities, worry and demand for risk mitigation in transport. An additional aim was to investigate differences in risk perception, worry, risk sensitivity, transport priorities and demand for risk mitigation in age-groups, gender and educational levels. A mail survey was conducted in a representative sample of the Norwegian public over 18 years (n=1947) in 2008. The response rate was 31 per cent. The results showed that transport priorities were the strongest predictor of demand for risk mitigation. Risk perception seems to be mediated by worry. Risk sensitivity was directly associated with transport risk perception and, not as predicted, also directly with demand for risk mitigation. The two youngest age-groups (18-30 and 31-50 years) perceived the probabilities of transport accidents in private transportation as significantly larger and also judged other non-transport risks to be larger than those over 50 years of age . The youngest age-group was more worried about injuries from private transportation but reported lower demands for risk mitigation. The findings merit further research into the relationship between risk perception and demand for risk mitigation. The results indicated that younger individuals were more worried about injuries and assessed the probability of accidents to be larger, while they report a lower demand for risk mitigation compared to older age-groups.
