MGA BATA, INDI MATANTIYA SING HUSTO ANG KADASIG SANG NAGAPAKARI NGA SALAKYAN
ANG mga bata nga nagatuon sa elementary wala pa sing tuman nga ikasarang agod karkulohon sing husto ang kadasig sang nagapakari nga salakyan nga nagadalagan sing mas madasig sa 20 miles per hour, natukiban sa isa ka bag-o nga pagtuon.
“This is not a matter of children not paying attention, but a problem related to low–level visual detection mechanisms,” siling ni John Wann, lead researcher kag professor sa department of psychology sa Royal Holloway College, University of London, sa isa ka university news release.
“So even when children are paying very close attention, they may fail to detect a fast-approaching vehicle,” paandam ni Wann.
“These findings provide strong evidence that children may make risky crossing judgments when vehicles are traveling at 30 or 40 mph.
“In addition, the vehicles that they are more likely to step in front of are the faster vehicles that are more likely to result in a fatality,” dugang ni Wann.
“Traveling one mile through a residential area at 20 mph versus 30 mph will only add 60 seconds to your journey time—we encourage drivers to take a minute and save a child’s life,” siling ni Wann.
Ining study findings ipaggwa sa upcoming print issue sang journal nga Psychological Science. (HealthDay News)
