|Abstract: ||Child development is known to be influenced by interpersonal
relationships within the family (Schor, 2003). The influence of the behavior of parents on different types of trafficrelated
behaviours of their children has been extensively studied.
The majority of prior research concentrates on the influence of
parents with respect to the driving behaviour of young novice
drivers (e.g. Miller & Taubman-Ben-Ari, 2010; Simons-Morton, 2007;
Bianchi & Summala, 2004).
Little is known about the interplay between the attitudes and
behaviours of parents and their children and the influence of
parenting styles and practices on the general traffic-safety
behaviours of early and young adolescents.
The aim of the research was to examine the relation between the
traffic safety-related attitudes and behaviours of pre-drivers and
their parents while taking into account the dyadic component
resulting from their family relationship and to examine the
perceptions on and influence of parenting styles and practices.|
