On March 25, 1961, Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller established the State Employee Traffic Safety Program. His executive order directed the head of each State department or agency to designate an agency accident review officer who would be responsible for obtaining relevant information on accidents involving State-owned passenger vehicles operated by employees of the department or agency and transmitting this information to the Accident Review Committee. The executive order designates the composition and duties of this Committee and further provides that the Division of Research and Development of the Department of Motor Vehicles shall analyze the accident cases reviewed by the Committee and submit periodic reports to the Committee. This report is the fourth submitted to the Committee. In the present report, the analysis of state-owned vehicle accident is divided into four areas: The Accident Setting, The Accident, The Distribution of Accidents Among State Agencies, and The State Driver and His Role in State-Owned Passenger Vehicle Accidents. Accident cases provided to the Division of Research by the Accident Review Committee indicate a total of 246 state-owned passenger vehicles assigned to fourteen departments were involved in 263 accidents in 1966. Seventeen passenger vehicles were involved in two accidents. Two accidents were fatal, 46 involved personal injury, and 115 involved property damage in excess of $100.
