A HUMAN FACTORS ANALYSIS OF MOST RESPONSIBLE DRIVERS IN FATAL ACCIDENTS

A special study of the alcohol/drug problem associated with the 'most responsible' drivers in fatal collisions occurring in the Greater Boston area is at present being conducted. The study is designed to answer four questions in the human/psychological/alcohol/drug areas with regard to these drivers: (1) differences between most responsible drivers who kill themselves (Type I), most responsible drivers who kill another driver or passenger (Type II), and drivers who kill pedestrians (Type III); (2) differences between alcohol-involved and non-alcohol-involved drivers; (30) differences between alcohol-involved drivers and drivers arrested for DWI; and (4) differences between drivers involved in fatal collisions within the Boston ASAP geographic area and those occurring outside the ASAP area. /NTIS/
