THE PREVENTION OF CHILD PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS AND ROAD SAFETY EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN: A COMPARISON OF VARIOUS EUROPEAN APPROACHES IN THE PERSPECTIVE OF DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY

This paper discusses the similarities in the etiology of child pedestrian accidents in the European countries, and goes on to examine how the various national approaches to developmental psychology have influenced accident prevention work in each country. Similarities noted are: (1) the age of the groups at risk (5-9 year olds and elderly people); (2) mortality rates for child pedestrians; (3) higher risks for boys, and for low socio economic groups; and (4) how accidents happen, (eg dashing out, parked cars, not looking). For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 866319.
