Road User Attitude and Road Safety

Rusda Irawati, Zulkifli Khair

Abstract

The report from WHO states that, deaths caused by traffic accidents have increased from year to year to reach 1.35 million people. The report also noted that close to 3,700 people die on the world's roads every day and tens of millions more are injured or disabled. Under these conditions, the United Nations then launched the Decade for Road Safety Action 2011-2020. The main objective of this action is to stabilize and reduce the rate of increase in road deaths around the world. Five main pillars of action are recorded in the Global Plan for the Decade of Action, namely, road safety management, safer infrastructure, safer vehicles, safer road user behavior and better post-accident response. The number of accident victims in Indonesia has also increased every year. In 2019, the National Police Traffic Corps stated 32,403 traffic accidents with 6,941 deaths in the first six months of 2019. This paper aims to conduct a literature review on the attitudes of road users and traffic safety in Indonesia and several countries in the world. This paper discusses a review of reports and articles of academic journals and these reports based on database found in Science direct, Research gate, Academia Edu, Google Scholar, newspapers, and related regulations. Finally, this paper will summarize the components of attitudes related to traffic safety, research methods used in papers and theories and models that are widely used as references to determine the causes for certain behavior, especially those related to traffic safety.
