This three-year study (2012 to 2015) was initiated and funded by VicHealth and commissioned to La Trobe University and the Parenting Research Centre. It addresses whether parental fear is a barrier to children’s independence and getting enough physical activity.
This experiment investigated to what extent low quality bicycle paths cause a shift of visual attention from distant environmental regions to more proximate road properties for young learner bicyclists (aged 6 to 12 years).
This research review highlights findings from studies conducted in several states and cities that have examined walking or biking rates, safety, and economic issues associated with Safe Routes to School programs.
This thesis provides insights into how the visual attention of young and adult bicyclists is distributed during different steering tasks and how this is affected by individual, task, and environmental constraints.
The primary focus of this study was to develop a safety performance function (SPF) for use in prioritizing candidate schools for Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs.
This study evaluates the effectiveness of Safe Routes to School programs with in-school bicycle education at reducing the crash rate and improving the safety of children and youth cyclists.
In this study, the "traffic informer program" – designed to promote safe traffic behavior in the pre-driver population – was experimentally evaluated, with a specific focus on bicycle use.
The objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness of an educational intervention on active commuting by bicycle.
