Abstract: 

Background and Objectives: Road traffic injuries (RTIs) compromise a large quantity of peoples annually, and are one of the most important causes of death in Iran. Human factors are amongst of the most leading causes of traffic accident mortality and morbidity. This study was conducted to evaluate the Knowledge, Attitude and practice of motorcyclist drivers regarding driving laws in Kashan.
Materials and Methods: Two hundred drivers were selected randomly in this cross sectional study. Cluster sampling with 10 participants in each cluster was used for selection of participants. 20 points were defined using a random sample of telephone numbers. Distribution points were such as one point selected in each zone of municipality zones. Ten consecutive drivers passing the specified point were interviewed by an interviewer and a senior officer of Traffic Control Organization of Kashan was responsible for assessment of practices. Reliability of questionnaire was evaluated using alpha Cronbach coefficient and construct validity was assessed by Principal component Analysis method. Chi square and odds ratio (OR) and logistic regression were used for assessment of relation between variables, when appropriate.
Results: Two hundred drivers were recruited in this study. Suitable Knowledge, Attitude and practice were seen in 57.8, 56.1 and 44.4 percent of respondents respectively. Related knowledge, attitude and performance drivers of road rules are not a statistically significant relationship. However, the relationship between drivers’ attitude and performance on this issue statistically was significant (p<0.01). Drivers’ performance differences in terms of age, occupation and motorcycle license is statistically significant (p<0.05).
Conclusion: We conclude that practice of Motorcyclist drivers of Kashan are weak regarding traffic laws and there is an emergent need for research and intervention in this regard.
