Abstract [en]

The aim of the present study is to improve our understanding of how young people makesense of traffic risk. The study also aims to contribute to current theory by refining the concept of'sense-making of risk'. The focus, both empirical and theoretical, is on role-taking emotions. In order tochart both the general significance for sense-making of social interaction and the respondentssubjective sense of traffic risk, the present study used both in-depth interviews and focus groupinterviews: the in-depth interviews comprised a total of eleven interviews with as many interviewees,while a total of 36 people were included in the eight focus group interviews. All interviewees wereSwedish residents aged between 16 and 20. It is found that by adopting the perspective afforded by thetheory of emotion, it is possible to extend our knowledge of individual sense-making of risk. Bothprimary emotions and role-taking emotions are central to how young Swedes form theirunderstanding of traffic risk. A focus on role-taking emotions reveals the importance of indirect socialinteraction for the individual's sense-making of risk in general, and adds to our knowledge of theindividual's sense-making of traffic risk in particular.
