ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of the revised road safety education module in enhancing knowledge, attitude and perceived behavioural control regarding road safety among school students. Data were gathered from a total of 835 students aged 15 years old (male = 381, female = 454) from six states across Malaysia. The samples were divided into treatment and control groups. The revised road safety module was supplied to the treatment group, whereas the control group did not use any module. For this purpose, a self-developed survey was employed to gauge responses. Data were analysed using IBM SPSS 22.0 software. The ANCOVA suggested that the treatment group demonstrated significantly higher mean scores in the post-test for both the knowledge and attitude towards road safety compared to the control group. However, no significant difference between the groups was reported for the construct of perceived behavioural control. The outcome of this research shall provide information to agencies such as the Road Safety Department of Malaysia and the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research to plan implementation of the revised module to all schools in 2020.
