Employee Attitudes to Driver Behaviour and Speed Cameras: A Case Study of Northumbria NHS Trust

Full text is not currently available for this publication.


In July 2005, the Northumbria NHS Trust conducted a survey of the attitudes of over 1500 of its employees towards driving behaviour and the operation of speed cameras in the Northumbria Police Force area. Northumbria NHS Trust and the (then) Northumbria Safety Camera Partnership (now the Northumbria Safer Roads Initiative) developed jointly a mail-out/mail-back questionnaire as part of a co-funded project in response to concerns over levels of driver safety in the Trust. The completed survey forms were passed to Newcastle University for data coding and analysis using the SPSS statistical package. This report presents the main findings of the data analysis. An important aspect to bear in mind at this early stage is that the adopted data collection method has yielded information on attitudes and behaviour as reported by drivers and non-drivers completing the survey. Thus, no validation of the behavioural data has taken place to assess how closely this reported behaviour represents actual behaviour.
