Road safety. Perceptions of final-year secondary-school students

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Final-year high-school students were surveyed to assess their knowledge and opinions concerning various aspects of road trauma in particular, its extent, its causes, its relationhip to alcohol consumption and the possible solutions to the problem of drink-driving. When compared to the students who took part in a similar study conducted six years previously, it was found that the 1983 students knew more about road trauma in general, and its relationship to alcohol, and were more accepting of intrusive remedial measures such as random breath-testing and speed-humps. Recommendations are made which take into account the students' views on the matter of possible solutions to the problem.
