HAZARDS TO CHILDREN IN TRAFFIC. A PAEDIATRICIAN LOOKS AT ROAD ACCIDENTS

An overall view is presented of the hazards facing children in traffic. The importance of the developmental aspects of childhood accidents is stressed, and a plea is made for doctors working with children to recognise the part they could play in reducing the number of road accidents to children by their understanding of child development and behaviour. It is an aspect of preventive paediatrics that is largely neglected at present. (TRRL)
