Abstract
A method is developed which can be used to observe and categorize systematically pedestrian behavior of children. No formal hypotheses are developed for testing since the emphasis is on the method. Data are given for the number of boys and girls walking or running during approach to a curb and the number of these who stop at the curb and watch for traffic. Two hundred analysis charts are completed which give information on the behavior of children while approaching a street. The actual description of the children's pedestrian behavior is considered a secondary aim of the study. Results presented deal only with approach behavior and curb behavior. Little difference is found between boys and girls in their approach behavior. Only 32 percent of the children are found to come to a full stop before entering the street. (Grant No. T01- OH-00002)
