||This is a detailed report to government and road safety researchers on the relative influence of cognitive and attitudinal factors on pedestrian risk-taking among young adolescents, and the impact on the operation of these factors of parental and peer behaviour. It details the growth in misperception of risk in the first three years of secondary school, the tension between parental and peer influences in the drift towards risk, and the prophylactic effect of earlier skills training. Originality: No previous research has examined the complex interaction between cognitive, behavioural, social and attitudinal factors in adolescents' pedestrian risk-taking. Rigour: The total sample employed was large (500 participants), and data collection involved extensive measurement of skills, perceived skills, attitude-related cognitions, personal, parental and peer behaviours. The main part of the research utilised a prospective design, and gathered responses in relation to eleven scenarios, enabling convergent analysis of common relationships via regression modelling.
