An Application of the Modified Health Belief Model to the Adolesscent Motorcyclists without License
The motorcycle is convenient, speedy, and movable, and it does represent the particular meaningfulness in the adolescents; however, it often occurs to the adolescent motorcyclists without license under the limit of driver age, especially in the poor public transportation system and the loose traffic police check-up. It is more dangerous to drive motorcycles without license than to commit other traffic violations because the former may cause serious and fetal traffic injuries. Therefore, it is very important to explore the influential variables of the adolescent motorcyclists without license for preventing them from the motorcycle injuries. There are very few studies for the adolescents' driving motorcycles without license whether domestic or foreign. The modified health belief model (MHBM) is taken as the framework of this study, and the structural equation models are used to understand the influential factors of the adolescent motorcyclists without license. The following results are found. The model offers the good prediction for the adolescents' driving motorcycles without license. Self-efficacy, safety value, perceived benefits, and barriers are four important variables of the behavioral motivation and expectation. Behavioral motivation, behavioral expectation, self-efficacy, and safety value are the important variables of the behavior in driving motorcycles without license. Again, the significant beliefs of the principal components in MHBM can efficiently discriminate the adolescents' driving motorcycles without license. It can offer us to develop the education program for the adolescents' driving motorcycles safely. Furthermore, the prediction of the model on the behavior is not different for gender, grade, and age, instead of the past behavior. The prediction of the model on the behavior is better for not driving than for driving motorcycles without license.
