Abstract This study compares four different measures for reducing accident involvement through changed driver behaviour: i.e. driver training, group discussions, campaigns and bonuses for accident-free driving. Five groups of approximately 900 Swedish professional drivers were used in the experiment and followed for two years. Four of the groups were test groups, where each took part in one of the measures. The fifth group was a control group. Group discussions and driver training succeeded in reducing the accident risk in the test groups, when compared with the control group. Accident costs were reduced in all four test groups, but not in the control group.
