Road safety education is one of the cornerstones for reducing road collisions. The growing exhaustion of engineering and new enforcement methods means road safety professionals are in an ever-increasing demand to improve education through direct (education) and indirect (publicity) methods. Most of the educational measures are aimed at school children, and advertising is aimed at society as a whole or as specific groups (such as motorcyclists). In this chapter, we will focus on discussing different elements around the use of education in road safety. We discuss different groups of society, different methods, and outcomes, and interpret some of the findings from research reports. Generally speaking in terms of spatial analysis and road safety education and publicity, there has been limited research. Only in recent years we have seen an attempt at using demographics to target specific high-risk groups in society (this will be discussed later in the chapter). In terms of the “spatiality” of education and publicity, more innovative work needs to be achieved. This chapter will therefore focus on the analysis that has been achieved and what the current trends, challenges, and statistics show us.
