Traffic Safety Education Program: Reviewing the Program for School Trip in Indonesia
The local government of Surakarta City Indonesia implemented traffic education program for school student starting on early 2013. The program aimed to increase the student awareness of traffic ethics and discipline. The purpose of that program was countering the high rate of motorized vehicle accident involving student and riding violation by student. The objective of this research was to evaluate that government program through examined the student travel to school characteristics. The evaluation was done by comparing the trip characteristics, attitude, and behavior of the student from school in the program and another school not in the program using the Mann-Whitney U-test and other descriptive statistics tests. The result indicated that there were significance differences between student from two groups of schools. However, the differences do not directly mean that the program was effectively working on the students, since the dissimilarities were in a negative direction. The absence of the prior data (before the implementation of the program) and the benchmark for the assessment, also the choice of the education program substances were assumed to be the shortcomings of that government education program. A suggestion for the improvement of the traffic safety education system was given for a more promising result.
