ROAD ACCIDENTS CANNOT BE IGNORED ANY MORE

VOUS NE POUVEZ PLUS IGNORER LES ACCIDENTS DE LA ROUTE

After recalling the legislative aspects of driving, the author studies the various facets of real driving, especially the conditions of roads, problems arising from unsatisfactory vehicle conditions, restrictions imposed (safety belts, helmets), vehicle nuisances, and drivers' capabilities. An attempt is made to find the causes of accidents, especially those due to a change in the personality of the driver. The medical aspects of accidents (first-aid, care, rehabilitation) are studied together with their economic angle (compensation). Present methods of accident prevention and repression are described and suggestions made as regards possible modifications to the present system. (TRRL)
