FIRST RESULTS OF EXACT ACCIDENT DATA ACQUISITION ON SCENE
For one year now, an interdisciplinary team (engineers, physicians and a psychologist) has been working on an analysis of accident occurences, in Hannover. First results show that only 36% of the accident causes could have been avoided or at least reduced. The analysis of accidents involving pedestrians showed that the more serious injuries were due to the impact with the vehicle and not the road surface.
