Abstract: Adolescent related motorcycle accident is a majority problem worldwide and the investigations indicated causes relation to unawareness of their riding behavior. The psychological mediating factors investigation suggested significant predictors as perceived behavioral control and past behavior. For modifying these factors, the video based training; demonstration behavior and feedback behavior were suggested. However, the HRT is a new apparatus to assist and helpfully for effective of riders awareness in the both training processes and assessment. Then for mitigation unawareness behavior in adolescent Thais motorcyclists, the training curriculum was developed by enhancing their perceived behavioral control, feedback their past behavior and using motorcycle simulator (HRT). Two communities were randomly assigned and 54 Thais adolescent motorcyclists who inclusive criteria were randomly to training group and 50 were set into control group. The training group was trained by the training curriculum. The effectiveness was assessed by self report questionnaires and test riding by HRT in control group was assessed with the same methods only. The analytical statistics were analyzed by ANCOVA, dependent t-test and independent t-test and the comparative outcomes in pre-post training and intergroup were performed by justification significant level at 0.05 (α = 0.05). The study showed the effectiveness of training by the curriculum in training group was significant mitigated unawareness riding behavior by measurement of self report questionnaires and test riding with HRT >60% from baseline (p<0.05) and mitigation in the both of its significant mediating factors (p<0.05). The mitigation was changed significant means different from control group in the both of unawareness riding behaviors and its mediating factors (p<0.05). The training curriculum could mitigate unawareness riding behavior in adolescent motorcyclists and could adapt using in other widely areas and can effect to mitigate incident of motorcycle accident later.
