This paper examines the problem of those ship collisions which are associated with infringements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea. Experimental evidence indicates that there are classes of encounters which lead to indecision and uncertainty of the part of ship's officers. It is suggested that the identification of these classes of encounters is the first step towards eliminating the difficulties associated with them.
