European countries are currently undergoing a process of political and economical union, involving nearly all domains of activity.
Road safety will of course be one of them.
When one reads literature from various countries (e.g., by British, Dutch, Swedish, German, French, etc. authors) dealing with child pedestrian accidents, one will very easily notice the similarities of accident etiology in the various countries :
the three groups « at risk » (the 5-9 year-olds, the 10-14 and aged persons) ;
male overrisk ;
SES influence ;
and how accidents « happen » (dashing-out, parked cars, visual search of the child, etc.) and so on.
Starting from these similarities, we will see how the particularity of each country concerning developmental psychology has influenced the approach to the problem.
