ROAD SAFETY IN THE SEVENTIES: LESSONS FOR THE EIGHTIES

This paper provides detailed evidence as to the problems of road safety and describes some of the past, current and proposed remedies in New South Wales and, to a degree, in Australia generally, many of which will be applicable to other heavily motorised countries. Of particular note are reviews of seat belt, child restraint and motorcyclist helmet usage, performance and developments; the future of occupant protection generally; the attitudes of motorcycle riders to official intervention for their safety; drink - driving (and "riding"); and roadside power poles (A).
