THE YOUNG CHILD IN TRAFFIC AS A PEDESTRIAN AND AS A CYCLIST. BACKGROUND DOCUMENTATION OF THE SAFETY CAMPAIGN "GIVE THEM A HAND"
HET JONGE KIND IN HET VERKEER ALS VOETGANGER EN ALS FIETSER. ACHTERGRONDDOCUMENTATIE TEN BEHOEVE VAN DE ACTIE "HELP ZE EEN HANDJE"
One of the purposes of the campaign is to make the driver aware of the fact that the child is also a child in traffic. Most drivers expect children to be able to do more than they do. Another purpose is to show the educators that the behaviour of the child in traffic can be influenced in a positive way by traffic education. In this background documentation an attempt is made to show why the child reacts as it does and what traffic education can do. Chapter I presents accident data to show the magnitude of the problem. Chapter II discusses the education of the child. It is shown briefly how much a child can and cannot do in traffic and areas at which traffic education must be specifically aimed. Chapter III discusses the development of the physical and psychical abilities of the child needed for traffic. (TRRL)
