This survey is aimed at assessing young peoples awareness as regards car accident prevention and misleading behaviours. The survey concerned a sample of 829 high school students of both genders, aged 17 to 23, from a chief town (Catania) and a country town (Noto, Siracusa). In addition to a good level of awareness as regards road accidents and misleading behaviours, the investigation also showed an opposite trend to disregard basic safety rules such as the use of helmets, safety belts and abstention from alcohol intake. Dangerous behaviours have shown to be higher in Noto than Catania, and more frequent among male than female of both towns. In the light of such results, some educational actions have been discussed for road safety.

The survey concerned a sample of 829 high school students of both genders, aged 17 to 23, from a chief town (Catania) and a country town (Noto, Siracusa). In addition to a good level of awareness as regards road accidents and misleading behaviours, the investigation also showed an opposite trend to disregard basic safety rules such as the use of helmets, safety belts and abstention from alcohol intake. Dangerous behaviours have shown to be higher in Noto than Catania, and more frequent among male than female of both towns. In the light of such results, some educational actions have been discussed for road safety.
