This project is a study to define and identify the safety in automotive traffic where the man and the machine coexist and may sometimes even conflict each other. The image of safety has changed with the ever developing and transforming mode of transportation. Since the transportation is related with all the other activities of our lives, the safety is not an entity by itself but must be viewed in a total societal framework. As a preliminary step, the study examined a real traffic accident to clarify and analyze how the various facets of our society interrelate with the particular case. Efforts have been made to find a sensible solution rather than merely to interpret the phenomena.
