Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Road Safety Research Report No.115 The Department for Transport commissioned MVA Consultancy and the University of Strathclyde to: Devise a methodology suitable for any later evaluation of the road safety impact of speed awareness courses; and propose and recruit a suitable ‘control group’ for any later evaluation, and collect comprehensive data from them. This control group is a sample of drivers who would have been eligible to take part in a speed awareness course, but who were not given this option because a course is not currently offered in their area.
