Samenvatting This study uses the results of a telephone poll carried out in September/October 1991 among the Dutch population aged 15 years and older. The study investigates to what extent the real and assumed use of Daytime Running Lights (DRL) differ from each other. One of the results is that the assumed and real use of DRL show only a good agreement (about 17%) on roads outside built-up areas in both the northern and in the eastern part of the Netherlands. The study also investigates to what extent the real use of DRL and the assumed respondents' interest in using DRL differ from each other. On average, the highest percentage of DRL use is found on motorways. However, the respondents find it less important to use DRL on motorways. The paper discusses the degree of acceptance of the DRL measure by: (1) motorists; (2) cyclists; and (3) pedestrians. The most important item used in this discussion is the knowledge level of these groups about the use of DRL in relation to: (i) traffic safety; (ii) making the use of DRL voluntary or compulsory; and (iii) the cost of DRL. The positive influence of the compulsory use of DRL on traffic safety should be explained in publicity campaigns.
