KNOWLEDGE AND PERCEPTIONS OF YOUNG PEDESTRIANS

The progress of a research study on school-age pedestrians has been previously reported in a paper that dealt with the behavior of drivers in relation to the existing signing at four school sites in three states. That research study has now been completed, and this paper deals primarily with the findings regarding youngsters in the 5 to 14-year-old age group. Data are provided on the accident experience of the young pedestrians and on their behavior, attitudes, and knowledge. Students in sections of the eastern United States were observed walking to school and were then surveyed on their pedestrian behavior and knowledge. Significant differences by age grouping were noted for both the accident data and knowledge responses. /Author/
