Gender Differences in Pedestrian Rule Compliance and Visual Search

Gender remains one of the main factors of road Accidentology. Men composed seventy to eighty percent of road fatal injuries between 15 and 59 year olds. Boys' injuries are more frequent and more severe than females' ones and exposition to risk seems to not be the only explicative factor. In particular, sex differences are observed in injury risk behaviours and in risk assessment among children, adolescents and adults. The objective of this study is to explore effect of gender difference in pedestrian rule compliance on walking and crossing behaviour.
