EINFUEHRUNG IN DEN MOTORISIERTEN STRASSENVERKEHR (EMS). ERSTER TEILBERICHT: ANALYSE DER ZIELGRUPPE ZUR VERKEHRSERZIEHUNG IM SEKUNDARBEREICH NACH EINSTELLUNGEN, INTERESSEN UND MEINUNGEN

THIS IS A STUDY OF THE LITERATURE DEVOTED TO THE ANALYSIS OF THE TARGET GROUP "JUVENILES", AND WHICH HAS TRIED AMONG OTHER THINGS TO PROVIDE POINTERS TOWARDS A MORE COMPREHENSIVE UNDERSTANDING OF THE REASONS FOR THE SPECIAL ACCIDENT RISK TO WHICH ADOLESCENTS ARE EXPOSED, TO RECOGNIZE AREAS OF POSSIBLE RESISTANCE TO THE PLANNED PROGRAMME, AND THROUGH THEIR RESULTS TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MODEL FOR TRAFFIC EDUCATION AT THE SECONDARY LEVEL. ALTOGETHER 12 SETS OF EMPIRICAL DATA ON JUVENILES AND ADOLESCENTS HAVE BEEN EVALUATED, FOR WHICH THE METHODS USED AND THE RANDOM SAMPLES ON WHICH THEY WERE BASED ARE BRIEFLY DESCRIBED. A DISCUSSION OF ASPECTS RELATING TO THE DESCRIPTION OF THE CLASSIFICATION "JUVENILES" IS FOLLOWED BY THE RESULTS OF THE EVALUATION IN RELATION TO THE FOLLOWING ASPECTS: ATTITUDES TO POLITICS AND THE MEDIA; ATTITUDES TO ECONOMIC SYSTEMS; ATTITUDES TO SCHOOL AND CAREER; ATTITUDES TO ACHIEVEMENT; ATTITUDE TO THE FAMILY; ATTITUDES TO THE CONCEPT "TRAFFIC". IN TWO FURTHER SECTIONS, SOCIOLOGICAL POINTERS ON THE THEME OF "JUVENILES" AND THE PROBLEM OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOUR ARE CONSIDERED. WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THE FINAL CONCLUSIONS REGARDING THE TRAFFIC EDUCATION OF YOUNG PEOPLE THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT RESULTS ARE FOUND: A SPECIFIC LACK OF EXPERIENCE, A STRONG EMOTIONAL ROLE ALLOTTED TO THE VEHICLE AND TO DRIVING, AN INCREASED WILLINGNESS TO TAKE RISKS, AND A LOW LEVEL OF AWARENESS OF SPECIAL AREAS OF DANGER. INDICATIONS OF POSSIBLE AREAS OF RESISTANCE ARE SEEN IN THE STRAINED RELATIONSHIP TOWARDS THE SCHOOL ESTABLISHMENT, IN SPECIFIC RULES OF BEHAVIOUR WITHIN PEER GROUPS AND IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO STRICT REGIMENTATION.
