Abstract

In Malaysia, police statistics data reveals that the number of child pedestrian casualties in the vicinity of schools showed a decreasing trend from 1995 up to year 2004. Despite the decrease trend, more efforts should be put to further reduce the number of school children casualties. One of the ways is through appropriate engineering interventions that modify the built environment around school areas to promote safe travel to and from schools. As such, the effects of the different built environment to the safety of school children need to be examined in order for appropriate treatment to be identified. This study adopted the use of traffic conflict technique to examine the effects of different built environment in the vicinity of schools. The main objective of this study was to examine the effects of various built environment on the rate of conflict between school children and vehicular traffic at traffic calmed schools.
