Daniel RodriguezPI. The research team proposes a pragmatic repeated-measures trial evaluating whether 7- and 8-year-old children learn to cross streets safely through training in a virtual reality pedestrian environment placed in a community setting. Data will be analyzed using linear mixed models that test change over time. It is expected that children will have fewer hits and close calls, will be more attentive to traffic, and will make quicker and more successful pedestrian crossing decisions following training in the virtual reality.
