ASPECTS OF VEHICLE SAFETY BASED ON AN INVESTIGATION INTO ACTUAL ACCIDENTS

ASPEKTE DER FAHRZEUGSICHERHEIT ANHAND EINER UNTERSUCHUNG VON REALEN UNFAELLEN

THE THESIS EXPLAINS THE CRITICAL REASONS FOR ACTUAL ACCIDENTS AND THE FACTORS INFLUENCING THEM. THE WORK, WHICH IS BASED PARTICULARLY UPON DAMAGE RECORDS OF THE HUK ASSOCIATION, ANALYSES ACCIDENT OCCURRENCES AND CONSEQUENCES TO MEN AND MATERIALS IN RELATION TO THE TYPE OF COLLISION AND REASON FOR THE ACCIDENT, AND SHOWS (SINCE ACCIDENTS ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT AVOIDABLE), TO WHAT EXTENT SAFETY MEASURES SUCH AS HEAD RESTS, SEAT BELTS, WINDSCREEN TYPE AND CRUMPLE ZONES REDUCE THE DANGER OF INJURY. FURTHERMORE EXPENSIVE AND IMPORTANT STRUCTURAL PARTS SHOULD BE PLACED ON THE RIGHT-HAND SIDE OF THE VEHICLE, SINCE THERE THEY ARE LESS LIABLE TO DAMAGE.
