Sammanfattning

The influence of a law that bans the discharge of toilet waste from leisure boats in the Baltic Sea. Göteborg Psychological Reports, 2010, No. 1. In order to understand the influence of prohibiting laws on personal norms and behaviour, people from two countries with coasts toward the Baltic Sea were examined. Boat owners from Finland, with a prohibiting law against discharging toilet wastewater in the sea, and from Sweden, without a similar law, answered a questionnaire when boating in Sweden. Sixty-two boat owners responded. Finnish boat owners had stronger personal norms against discharging toilet waste and acted more environmentally friendly in this regard, compared with Swedish boat owners. Hence, to live in a country with a prohibiting law may influence both personal norms and own behaviour to the extent that people pursue the desirable behaviour although being away from the jurisdiction of the law.
