At what age can kids safely cross the street?
from HealthDay News
Crossing a busy street requires calculations too complex for kids younger than 14, a new study finds. In simulated experiments, University of Iowa researchers found children lack the perceptual judgment and physical skills needed to consistently get across safely. "Some people think younger children may be able to perform like adults when crossing the street," said study corresponding author Jodie Plumert, a professor of psychological and brain sciences.
