EPIDEMIOLOGICAL PICTURE OF THE TRAFFIC INJURIES IN EUROPE 1970-1979

EPIDEMIOLOSKA SLIKA SAOBRACAJNOG TRAUMATIZMA U EVROPI 1970-1979

This review compares traffic accidents and their consequences in the USA, Europe, Japan, Canada and Australia between 1970 and 1979. The conclusion is alarming and surpasses all tolerable limits. In Europe and the USA, there were about 2 million casualties each year with thousands of fatalities. Data on the total number of casualties collected in 19 European countries, including Yugoslavia, point out the existence of three groups: countries with a decreasing trend in casualties, countries in a static state, and countries where the number of traffic casualties is on the increase, among which Yugoslavia, Portugal and Spain stand out.
