EPIDEMIOLOGICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL ASPECTS OF ALCOHOL RELATED ACCIDENTS IN ROAD TRAFFIC

EPIDEMIOLOGISCHE UND EXPERIMENTELLE ASPEKTE DES ALKOHOL-UNFALLS IM STRASSENVERKEHR

FROM CONTROLLED OBSERVATIONS AND EXPERIMENTS IT CAN BE SEEN THAT THE NATURE OF BRAKING BEHAVIOUR, OBSERVED AT HIGH BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATIONS, IS LESS CONTROLLED AND MORE LIKELY TO LEAD TO SKIDDING AND TO AN ACCIDENT THAN THE GENERAL AND MORE EVEN REDUCTION IN VELOCITY, WHICH IS OBSERVED IN THE CASE OF TEST DRIVERS WITH A ZERO BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENT. THIS RESEARCH PROJECT HAS THE LONG TERM AIM OF A REDUCTION IN ROAD ACCIDENTS INVOLVING DRINKING DRIVERS.
