CHILDREN'S STRATEGIES FOR ROAD CROSSING IN AN URBAN ENVIRONMENT. A THESIS SUBMITTED FOR THE DEGREE OF M SC

The two major areas of research covered are: (I) the ability of the child to learn the necessary skills to enable it to cope with the different levels of risk within the road situation. (II) the way in which the existing road layout can be adapted or modified in order to increase the safety of the pedestrian, particularly the child. Two of the conclusions drawn from this study are: (I) that the road environment should to some degree be modified in order to increase the safety of the child pedestrian, for example, by the installation of crossing facilities. (II) that greater effort should be expended, particularly through the educational system of this country, to increase the safety of the child pedestrian, by ensuring that he/she is equipped to cope with the road environment, in terms of both knowledge and ability. /TRRL/
