Identified Risk Factors Among Truck Drivers Circulating in France
Paper in proceedings, 2020

The growth of the European market for road-freight transport has recently led to important changes. Moreover, due to the geographical context of France, truck drivers from different countries circulate on French roads to deliver their goods. Having road safety concerns in mind and based on a literature review, as well as interviews, a French questionnaire has been developed. Aiming at collecting data among truck drivers from different European countries, the questionnaire has been translated into seven languages and has been administered at four highway rest areas in France. The collected data were analyzed by means of multiple correspondence analysis, which pointed out new links between working conditions, driving behaviors, perceptions of the road environment, job skills, and risk factors. The practical implications of the results for improving the safety of the infrastructure used by truck drivers and their well-being are discussed.
