THE MEASUREMENT OF RISK AND THE ATTRIBUTION OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR CHILD PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

The paper discusses child safety education from three aspects - who should be trained, what they should be taught and what are likely to be the most effective training methods. The author also examines responsibility for accidents and the means by which they might be prevented. It is argued that this responsibility is something which must be socially defined rather than discovered. It is logical to give responsibility to those who can take effective action and back it up with whatever sanctions are practicable to ensure that the responsibility is accepted. /TRRL/
