A PSYCHOLOGICAL ANALYSIS OF OPERATORS INVOLVED IN FATAL MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS.
This Intermediate Report includes the results from the Boston Special Study Accident Investigation Team which has been researching the human factors associated with the most responsible operators involved in fatal motor vehicle accidents in the greater Boston area since September 1971. The areas of primary interest presented in these findings include: basic demographic statistics; psychosocial, physiological and legal history evaluations; an analysis of historical and focal alcohol, marijuana and other drug use patterns; and human factors associated with the focal accident. This report includes the findings on 175 most responsible accident operators. The forthcoming Final Report will present detailed results on all 300 operators included in this research.
