ELDERLY PEDESTRIANS: ASSESSMENTS OF THE RELATIVE VALUE OF INSTRUCTION ON ALTERNATIVE SAFETY TOPICS

Road safety officers with experience of accident prevention work with the elderly, were asked to rate 58 topics which might be included in road safety instruction to elderly pedestrians. The ratings were for importance for safety and for likelihood that elderly pedestrians would do what was advocated after instruction or publicity on that topic. Ratings for importance and likelihood of adoption proved to be closely correlated, but though rso's felt that most of the items were "important" or "very important", it was usually thought that only "some" would follow the advice. A priority order for these topics was produced based on these assessments. (Author/TRRL)
