TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS CONCERNING CHILD EPIDEMIOLOGY. MECHANISM AND MEANS OF PREVENTION

The aims of this paper are to define the injuries sustained by children, either as pedestrians or as rear seat car occupants, and to compare their lesions with those suffered by adults. The authors notice some differences which can be explained by differences of height and weight, but also by the dynamics of the children and by a different tolerance to impact. This paper put forward possible explanations of the differences observed between children and adults, which can be verified by specific studies.
