OLYCKSTYPER MED OEVNINGSBILAR VID TRAFIKSKOLA. EN ENKAETUNDERSOEKNING (TYPES OF TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS WITH DRIVING STUDENTS)

In 56 per cent of all their accidents with a student at the steering wheel, driving school cars have been hit from behind. These accidents are of two kinds mainly, according to a study in which 1268 random sampled driving teachers answered a questionnaire by mail after a 4.7 per cent rate of nonresponse. In half of the cases the student had been braking or got an inadvertent engine stop. In the other half the student had been waiting in an intersection, in a traffic line, or similar situations. Accidents in which drivers behind the student's car have been surprised by sudden stops, occur earlier in the driver training than other types of rear end collisions or other accidents. In 3 per cent of all accidents persons have been injured to an extent that medical diagnosis or treatment have been necessary.
