Performance Evaluation of The Road Traffic Safety Letures
The object of the thesis is three folds. First, to understand the current status of road traffic safety lectures as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of the lecture. Second, to explore the encountering problem of the lectures. Finally, to propose possible improvements for the lectures. Current lecture for traffic rule violators is the only way to reeducate drivers. However, how does it work is neglected. This study intends to evaluate the lecture’s effectiveness through second hand data analysis, and surveying the people who ever attended the lecture. In order to measure people’s satisfaction level toward the lecture, the survey employs questionnaire structured with satisfaction scale questions to gain the primary data, and uses frequency and percentage analysis method to analyze data. From the survey result, it is found that the re-violating rate accounts for around 20 percent of total respondents who attended the lecture one year ago. The rate to re-violate serious traffic rule is even lower. It shows the lecture has effectiveness in preventing drivers to breach traffic rule again, especially effective in driving after drink, or running through the red light because violators are required to attend lecture. The survey result reveals that the majority of the lecture attendees tend to be people aged between 18-35, male, work at business and service fields, high school educated. Most attend the lecture first time, and they do not know why they should attend the lecture. Most breach the rule unconsciously. What the respondents satisfy with are the lecture setting, the facilities, staffs’ courtesy attitude, and the lecturer. What they dissatisfy with is the length of time. Most of them feel that the lecture is helpful in understanding the traffic rule, but cannot improve drive skill. The solid improvement measures suggested in this thesis include creating lively and practical material for the lecture, to send the notice to attendees as soon as possible, and to make lecture hours more flexible. As for lecture content, use more cases study in class. Moreover, promote the traffic lecture more actively and widely to prevent traffic rules violation and fulfill the function of traffic safety education.
