InDeV announces winners of iPad mini
Sep 15, 2017

Within the framework of the European project InDeV, IMOB raffled one iPad mini among the participants who filled in every monthly questionnaire. Anthony Aerts received his prize this week.

In september 2016, IMOB called to help improve the Vulnerable Road Users’ Safety in Europe. More than 1.000 enthusiastic men and women participated in this study. In this study, participants had to fill in an online questionnaire monthly. In this questionnaire, the participants had to indicate if – or if not – they were involved in an accident. If yes, they were asked a number of questions, for example the location, data and time of the accident. What had happened and who was involved? “By using this survey data, we aim to shed a better light onto the accident causation of vulnerable road users”, said Sofie Reumers, researcher at IMOB (Hasselt University).

The study ran from September 1, 2016, to June 1, 2017. The participants who filled in every monthly questionnaire until June 1, 2017, had a chance of winning an iPad mini. In the meantime, an innocent hand declared this winner: Anthony Aerts!

Second winner thanks to quarterly questionnaire

IMOB also organized a second survey, which was send out quarterly to the participants. Sofie Reumers: “An accident often causes material and corporal damage. Have you been transported to the nearest hospital by ambulance? Have you been hospitalized? If yes, how many nights? Have you been on rehabilitation as a result of the accident? Was there any property damage due to the accident? With this survey, we aimed to map accident costs. The 1265 participants of the second survey also had a chance of winning an iPad mini.” Daniel Studzianski turned out to be the lucky winner!

A big thanks to all participants for their cooperation!
