La mobilité des périurbains lointains d'Île-de-France, usage des réseaux et sécurité des déplacements

Abstract : Outer suburban areas are part of the modern city but they do not provide all functions that are gathered in the city center. Thus, for people who chose to live there an efficient mobility is compulsory to perform their activity programs. This research will focus on the relationship between dwelling and moving in areas affected by the urban sprawl. It is obvious and generally admitted that car is the transportation mode preferred in such places. However the reason for this preference is questioned here and it appears that suburbans behave as limited rationality actors. Road users adapt their uses and practices to existing networks. They show no preference for any particular road type, and once a route is chosen they seldom change it.
From these behaviors derive an essential question: is road safety taken into account by suburban car drivers when deciding to move? Indeed it seems that driving risk is more or less considered as an inevitable hazard that comes out with mobility itself. They integrated the chance of casualty to their way of moving. Suburban car drivers accepted it as a sort of cost that they have to support anyway, and this one would not make them change their way of living at all.
