Traffic climate, driver behaviour, and accidents involvement in China
Chu, Wenhui; Wu, Chaozhong; Atombo, Charles; Zhang, Hui; Özkan, Türker (2019-01-01)
Traffic Climate Scale (TCS) and Positive Driver Behaviours Scale (PDBS) are new measurement tools. The study aims to translate the TCS and PDBS into Chinese and to assess their factor structures in a large sample of licensed motor vehicle drivers in China. A further aim is to investigate the effects of TCS factors on drivers' behaviours and traffic accidents involvement. Data were collected using an online survey. Participants were 887 fully licensed motor vehicle drivers, including 531 males and 356 female...
Safety risk assessment using analytic hierarchy process (AHP) during planning and budgeting of construction projects
Aminbakhsh, Saman; Gunduz, Murat; Sönmez, Rifat (Elsevier BV, 2013-09-01)
Introduction: The inherent and unique risks on construction projects quite often present key challenges to contractors. Health and safety risks are among the most significant risks in construction projects since the construction industry is characterized by a relatively high injury and death rate compared to other industries. In construction project management, safety risk assessment is an important step toward identifying potential hazards and evaluating the risks associated with the hazards. Adequate prio...
Driver sleepiness, fatigue, careless behavior and risk of motor vehicle crash and injury: Population based case and control study
Bener, Abdulbari; Yildirim, Erol; Özkan, Türker; Lajunen, Timo (2017-10-01)
Background: A few studies have been conducted to determine the relationship between road motor vehicle crashes (MVC) and serious injuries related to tiredness, fatigues and sleeping.

Drivers have an important place in the traffic system when the human factor is taken into consideration. Drivers from different cultures are exposed to different values, norms, and traffic systems, and these differences may form various driver behaviors. Thus, traffic climate and individual values can impact driver behaviors. In this study, the relationships between Schwartz's individual values and traffic climate dimensions were examined. Clusters were then created from the traffic climate dimensions and i...
