The "Bicycle Safety Youth Team Program" Research
Project employs a multifaceted approach to increase bicycle
helmet use and safe bicycling. The first generation of this
research project was field tested in three middle schools
in Florida. The project produced large increases in helmet
use, and correct helmet use in all three schools and the effects
were maintained when students were discreetly monitored some
distance from the school. The research project was designed
to require minimal adult supervision and had many components
that promoted a sense of ownership by students riding their
bicycles to school. The next generation of the project, currently
being evaluated by NHTSA, is designed to build on the strengths
of the original research project.
