Adolescent’s attitudes to drunk driving on a moped (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det övergripande syftet med den här uppsatsen var att undersöka vad som påverkar unga mopedförares intentioner till att köra alkoholpåverkade.  Ytterligare ett syfte var att belysa de generella attityder till alkohol- och trafikrelaterade frågor som finns bland svenska ungdomar. Samtliga resultat och analyser baserades på en enkätundersökning utförd av Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut (VTI). Enkäten vände sig till gymnasieelever och i analyserna behandlades svar från 1 933 elever i åldersintervallet 15 – 21 år.

De statistiska analyserna innefattade χ2-test samt en ordinal logistisk regressionsmodell. Resultaten visade att ungdomarna generellt såg det som oacceptabelt att köra moped med alkohol i blodet. Dock trodde de inte i riktigt lika hög utsträckning att bästa kompisen såg det som oacceptabelt. Det som visade sig ha störst påverkan på ungdomarnas intentioner till att köra mopedonyktra var hur troligt de ansåg det vara att bästa kompisen skulle köra i samma situation. Resultaten visade även att personer som tidigare kört påverkade besitter en klart högre intention att åter köra mopedonyktra.

Abstract [en]

The overall objective of this report was to examine what affect young moped driver’s intentions to drive after drinking alcohol. A further aim was to illustrate Swedish adolescent’s attitudes towards alcohol and traffic in general. All results and analysis are based on a survey created by Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI). The survey was addressed to high school students and the analysis consisted of answers from 1 933 students in the age of 15 - 21 years.

The statistical analysis included χ2-tests as well as an ordinal logistic regression model. The results showed that adolescents in general thought it was an unacceptable behavior to drink and drive. However, the extent of expected acceptance level was higher when assessing their friend’s opinion. What proved to be most essential for the adolescent’s intentions was how likely they considered it to be that their best friends would drive in the same situation. The results also showed that a person with earlier experience of driving a moped with influence of alcohol or drugs has a clearly higher intention to drink and drive again.
