Abstract

The present study appraises the effectiveness of the Loewenstein Hospital's Rehabilitation Center's Road Safety Workshop, based on emotional experience. For the purposes of the study, a survey questionnaire was created based on Ajzen and Fishbein's Theory of Planned Behavior [Ajzen, I., 1991. The Theory of Planned Behavior. Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes 50, 179-211]. The study was carried out using the target study method, and included matching groups of students aged 17-18. The results of the study suggest that vocational school students who attended the workshop hold a more road safety oriented view than students who did not attend the workshop. No statistically significant difference was found between the views of academic high school students who did or did not attend the workshop. In addition, an enhanced effect of the workshop on holders of driver licenses was found.
