Driving habits in Ljubljana presented at the University of Zadar

Findings of the DriveGreen research team were presented at the international interdisciplinary conference “Movements, Narratives, and Landscapes”, organised from 5th to 7th June 2015 at the University of Zadar (Croatia).  In the paper entitled “Singing the “Home – Work” Refrain in Ljubljana: Analysis of Daily Commuters’ Driving Habits” it was explained why and how a repeated driving along the same routes becomes an integral part of “habitus”, i.e. part of learned practices and habits which become so automatic and intuitive that people eat, chat, listen to music, make telephone calls, send text messages and perform other activities while driving, rarely even thinking about their behaviour on the road. As it was illustrated through various examples from Ljubljana, driving is more than a habit of an individual – it is also a social practice. Drivers imitate one another and “teach” one another the formal and informal rules that exist in traffic, they adapt to the situation on the road and communicate with one another, both verbally and nonverbally, all of which helps create a “driving habitus” of the city. Finally, it was explained how the driving habitus can be changed and influenced by mobile applications – including the one prepared in the DriveGreen project.
