The Effects of Prompting and Reinforcement on Safe Behavior of Bicycle and Motorcycle Riders
Okinaka, Takeru; Shimazaki, Tsuneo
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v44 n3 p671-674 Fall 2011
A reversal design was used to evaluate the effects of vocal and written prompts as well as reinforcement on safe behavior (dismounting and walking bicycles or motorcycles on a sidewalk) on a university campus. Results indicated that an intervention that consisted of vocal and written prompts and reinforcement delivered by security guards was effective at increasing safe behavior exhibited by bicycle and motorcycle riders. No differences were observed between vehicle type or gender with regard to engagement in safe behavior. (Contains 1 figure.)
