dc.description.abstractThe last two decades have seen a substantial change in the basic philosophyunderlying European transportation policy. Due to the Commission's efforts and due tosupporting jurisdiction by the European Court of Justice the dominant approach totransportation policy has become far more market oriented. This change of approach intransportation policy will only be successful and sustainable if the problem of acceptabilitywill be solved. For researchers this entails that their perspective must change from thenormative to the positive aspects of transportation policy-making. This paper reports work undertaken within research project TIPP (Transportation Institutions in the Policy Process) funded by the European Commission. In this work it has been attempted to develop atheoretical structure that merges the positive economic theory of regulation with cognitivepsychology and traffic psychology. This theoretical structure offers a matrix of actors and factors that are seen to be essential for success or failure in the implementation of a certain measure of transport policy. Four case studies were carried out in order to check theplausibility of this approach. The case studies are the failure of the German Railway(Deutsche Bahn AG) to introduce a new tariff system in passenger transport in the period2002-2003, the attempt to introduce a toll for HGVs in Germany, the failure to operate aprivate tolled motorway in Hungary (M1/M15), the failure to introduce a road-pricing systemin the densely populated Randstad area in the Netherlands.en_US
