Awareness and Traffic Safety among Kuwaiti Youth, and its Relation with Psychological Trauma Following Exposure to Traffic Accidents

Auther : Fawzya Altarkit Abdulhameed Al-Abasy

The phenomenon of traffic accidents in the Kuwaiti society has notably increased during the past few years. This increase in traffic accidents led researchers to study and analyze this phenomenon in order to outline its causes and consequences for the purpose of providing recommendations that would help the officials to control it and reduce its post-trauma impacts.This research paper aims at highlighting the importance of dissemination of awareness about traffic safety as a preface to control traffic accidents committed by Kuwaiti youth between the ages of 15-25. For this awareness to be rewarding, there should be thorough collaboration between all concerned authorities and state internal security. The research argues that focusing on traffic safety awareness does not underestimate the importance of the other aspects related to traffic accidents, namely the road and the vehicle. The research focuses on the category of Kuwaiti youth between the ages of 15-25 because the statistics confirms that this category is the most responsible as the cause behind traffic accidents. It has been confirmed that there is a post-accident trauma among those youths who have been involved in traffic accidents. The research recommends intensifying the roles and efforts of all the authorities concerned with dissemination of awareness about traffic safety and carrying out periodical evaluations and assessments of the results to determine the general and psychological impacts of traumas on the youth. It was shown that post-accident traumas affect 27 % of the Kuwaiti youth involved in traffic accidents.
Keywords: Traffic awareness, Traffic safety, Traffic accidents, Psychological trauma, Logistic regression.
