PUBLIC ACCEPTABILITY OF HIGHWAY SAFETY COUNTERMEASURES. VOLUME IV: PEDESTRIAN SAFETY

This volume is part of a larger study providing information about public attitudes towards proposed highway safety countermeasures in three program areas: alcohol and drugs, unsafe driving behaviors, and pedestrian safety. Pedestrian safety countermeasures discussed in this volume include street safety classes for children, vendor regulations, and model parking laws. For the general public survey, acceptability issues are analyzed in terms of demographic characteristics (including age of children under 25), role of schools in safety training, perceived seriousness of the safety problem, and perceived effectiveness of the proposed countermeasure. Special interest perspectives include discussions of parental involvement in children's safety programs, implementation costs, significance of the safety problem, degree of inconvenience imposed on the public, and effectiveness in accident reduction.
