The researchers undertook to identify the factors that are most likely to influence children's intentions to use bicycle helmets.
To determine the most important intention influencing factors, a random sample of 797 students in grades 4 through 6 completed a self-administered questionnaire concerning their beliefs about helmet use.
They were asked about their perceptions of the risk of riding bicycles unprotected, the severity of possible head injuries, and about other bicycle-safety related behaviors.
Factors that best predicted the student's intentions to use bicycle helmets involved both behavioral beliefs and normative beliefs.
