Production et reproduction d'une culture du risque : le cas de l'éducation routière

Abstract : If driving safety started at the same time as cars, the social phenomenon of road safety only started to develop in the second half of the 20th century. Ever since, comparative studies of those driving courses showed difficulties to enhance the road mortality and morbidity. Still, this has been a major issue of public policies: in fact, road safety policies had always given to road education one of the first roles in the prevention system. We tried to identify the beginning and the persistence of this paradox in the practice of the road safety actors and in the construction and transmission of a common risk culture as we can find it in our advanced modernity. We led this research from the observation of the practices of road safety education. We alternatively worked as a driving instructor, instructor trainer and traffic psychologist. This research is structured, thus, by the immersion in the field work of road safety education. Our ground theory are the philosophy of techniques (Illich, Canguilhem, Simondon, Stiegler) and the sociology of risk (Beck, Douglas, Duclos) along in perspective with the psychosociological theory of risk homeostasis (Wilde).
