The Contributions of Adult Education to Traffic Safety: An Annotated Bibliography Article 1: Plumert, Jodie, Kearney, Joseph, Cremer, James, Recker, Kara, and Strutt, Jonathan. Changes in children’s perception-action tuning over short time scales: Bicycling across traffic-filled intersections in a virtual development. Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 108 (2011): 322-337. This article defines the important ways in which adult education can define the ways in which short-term changes in skill development can enhance traffic safety. The study defines the way that adults work with children in a setting involving a virtual set of intersections in which bicyclists move through varying levels of time and...
..... speed of an elderly participants thoughts while learning and adapting the differing road conditions, the study provides vital information on the importance of cognitive speed training as an exercise that can increase traffic safety and provide more elderly persons with access to mobility. Without such training via adult education, these persons would invariably be limited to driving under very limited conditions or to even not have the ability to drive at all. Certainly, adult education contributes to the betterment of traffic safety by providing studies of this kind that clinical define (with a wide range of variables and testing measures) how increasing the speed of cognition is something that can be taught through adult instructors.
