IN SEARCH OF SAFER ROADS: WHAT WORKS IN CHANGING ROAD USER BEHAVIOR

The report summarizes a comprehensive review of knowledge published regarding legislation, enforcement, reinforcement, and education as tools for influencing road used behavior in pursuit of safer travel. It addresses general models of behavior change and those models directed specifically to health-related behaviors, and considers the enhancement of the effects of traffic enforcement through strategic linkages between enforcement and other countermeasures. It also reviews road safety education, including school-based programs, driver education, skill development training, patient and health-care client education, public education and mass-media programs, parent education, drunk driver programs, and community education. Educational objectives and the relative importance of underlying abilities, skills, knowledge, and attitudes are discussed along with lessons for road safety to be learned from health promotion efforts.
