Abstract

Objective: To identify the determinants of behavioural intention towards safe road-crossing among college students. Methods: The cross-sectional study was conducted in 2013-14 and comprised students of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran. A self-administrated questionnaire was distributed among the subjects related to road-crossing based on the theory of planned behaviour. Data was analysed using SPSS 21. Results: Of the 300 questionnaires distributed, 278(92.66) were returned completed. The mean age of the subjects was 23.16 +/- 3.66 years. There were 149(53.6) females and 129(46.4) males, with females crossing the street more safely than the males. There was a significant difference between the genders for subjective norms (p=0.001), perceived behavioural control (p=0.002) and behavioural intention (p=0.001), but no differences were traced with respect to attitude towards safe crossing (p=0.597). Results showed a direct and positive correlation between attitude towards safe crossing (r=0.276; p=0.001), subjective norms (r=0.368; p=0.001) and perceived behavioural control (r=0.419; p=0.000) with behavioural intention to safe crossing. Conclusion: The attitude towards safe crossing and perceived behavioural control had significant effect on behavioural intention among college students.
