AN ASSESSMENT OF DRIVER EDUCATION ON ROAD TRAFFIC CRASHES IN GWAGWALADA AREA COUNCIL
This study is concerned with the effects of driver education on road traffic crash involvement in Gwagwalada Area Council. The main objectives are: to assess the level of education of drivers in Gwagwalada Area Council; to determine the level of drivers training in the study area; to determine the relationships between the level of education and road traffic crash on one hand and between the level of drivers training and road traffic crash on the other. Data for this study were obtained on the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of commercial drivers and their road crash involvement. The characteristics considered are sex, age, income, level of education, drivers training (education), driving experience, and road traffic crash involvement. These were obtained through questionnaire administered to commercial drivers and also through Focus Group Discussion (FGD). Data on road traffic crash were also obtained from the Federal Road Safety Corps. The data obtained were analysed using simple tables, graphs and chi-square statistical techniques. Analysis of the data led to the conclusion that: the level of education of the drivers has no effect on road traffic crashes; there exists a positive relationship between drivers training and road traffic crash. Drivers who pass through driving schools before being licenced have less road traffic crashes. Drivers training are more related to road traffic crash than the level of education. The study therefore recommends for the establishment of standard driving schools under proper supervision of regulatory agencies and for the Law on licenses that require mandatory training of new drivers in driving schools to be properly enforced. The study also recommends periodic retraining of commercial drivers. Continue reading ASSESSMENT OF DRIVER EDUCATION ON ROAD TRAFFIC CRASHES
