INCREASING THE RISK IN INJURY THROUGH THE MUTUAL EFFECT OF VEHICLE OCCUPANTS

ERHOEHUNG DES VERLETZUNGSRISIKOS DURCH DIE GEGENSEITIGE BEEINFLUSSUNG VON KRAFTFAHRZEUGINSASSEN

WHEN CARS OCCUPIED BY SEVERAL PEOPLE ARE INVOLVED IN ACCIDENTS, THE PROTECTIVE ACTION OF THE SAFETY EQUIPMENT MAY BE IMPAIRED BY THE MOVEMENTS OF THE PEOPLE. THE OBJECT IS TO DETERMINE HOW OCCUPANT PROTECTION CAN BE IMPROVED IN FRONTAL AND REAR-END COLLISIONS, EVEN WHEN THERE ARE SEVERAL VEHICLE OCCUPANTS. FAILURE OF SAFETY EQUIPMENT DUE TO MULTIPLE OCCUPANCY IS TO BE DETERMINED FROM ANALYSES OF ACCIDENTS. TESTS ARE TO ESTABLISH THE MOVEMENTS OF NON-SECURED OR INSUFFICIENTLY SECURED REAR OCCUPANTS, AND IMPROVEMENTS ARE TO BE WORKED OUT FOR SEATS AND HEAD RESTS. FORCES EXERTED ON THE MODIFIED SAFETY DEVICES ARE TO BE MEASURED. A COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS OF THE IMPROVED MEASURES IS TO BE UNDERTAKEN.
