Children’s traffic park design in USA to promote children’s traffic safety education
MetadataShow full item record
Many transportation proposals aim to enhance child traffic safety, and they suggest environmental interventions, law enforcements, and educational methods as the solutions. However, educational approach has not been focusing on practices. When we consider children’s perceptual immature, hand-on education should be more efficient than verbal education. Thus, through an examination of typical child motor vehicle-related crash types in Austin and recent interviews, this Professional Report proposes a Children’s Traffic Park as a practical educational method that delivers traffic rules and influences children’s attitudes and behaviours to traffic.
